Yelizaveta Ignatevna Svilova (Russian: Елизаве́та Игна́тьевна Сви́лова, rendered in Latin as Elizaveta Svilova) (5 September 1900, Moscow – 11 November 1975, Moscow) was a Russian filmmaker and film editor.
Council of Three
She was part of the "Council of Three," with her husband and brother-in-law, cinematographer Mikhail Kaufman. Together, they "proclaimed a 'death sentence' on the cinema that came before, faulting it for mixing in 'foreign matter' from theater and literature."
She covered the opening of Auschwitz death camp in Poland by the Red Army in January 1945. She filmed a documentary, notably with reenactments, titled Auschwitz, part of an exhibition titled "Filming the War; the Soviets and the Holocaust (1941-1946)" (9 January 2015 – 27 September 2015) in Paris, France, at the Memorial de la Shoah.
