Turgenev died 40~ years before Morozov's tale was popularized. Figure out where and how the two tales intersect and detail this from sources (seems like Eisinstein and company blended the literary and folklore stories)
Go through all sources on here; find more.
Build out this section (more modern sources)
Build up section on literary aspects, article may end up as a short one on the story, and a longer on the film
Needs a lead.
I want to help build this out
I want to bring this article to FA status. I found it fascinating the more I read about it.
I have started to compile sources at User:Lawrence Cohen/work/Bezhin Meadow. If possible, would anyone here be able to help me drum up more and post them to my page there (feel free to edit it)? I'd be willing to do the bulk of the heavy lifting, if needed. Thanks! Lawrence Cohen 20:16, 7 January 2008 (UTC)
Needed sections and info
To build out the article further...
Overview, of course. Its such a rich topic I'm waiting to build this out myself till the subsections are done even though its not proper in the interim.
- The original story, and Pavlik
More sourced information on the both the Turgenev original story, and the tale of Pavlik. The current section is basically material from the Pavlik article, which was not heavily sourced. 1-2 paragraphs, maybe 3?
More on what led to the film's creation, and why it was filmed. 1-2 paragraphs?
- Production section
Not one yet, possibly another paragraph. I want to pore through the collection of sources I already found for more technical information on the filming. The societal and general information is largely covered I think
- Film Plot
I think I may need to download the film from somewhere. Another full paragraph, most likely. It's not a long film.
Detailed information on it's legacy. What was it's impact on the Soviet Union? The rest of the world? How did it affect Soviet cinema and the arts? What about the rest of the world?
- Study or Analysis of Bezhin Meadow
There are an amazing number of books, essays, and materials on this film that was never finished, properly screened, or released. Could be a good section.
Any other suggestions? Lawrence Cohen 21:14, 11 January 2008 (UTC)
Moscow, we have a problem
Failure? I recognize there's an issue of NPOV to be dealt with, & I frankly don't have a better word in mind, but calling a film that was suppressed by the Sov gov't a failure strikes me as NPOV in a pro-Sov direction... TREKphiler hit me ♠ 04:41, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
