Like many film movements we have studied so far in this course, The Soviet Montage movement stemmed from the political issues and revolutionary circumstances these people were going through at the time. Ironically, the technique was discovered because of lack of funds. At the time, many of the Soviet filmaker could not afford new film equipment so they rosorted to editing older films. They discovered that just by editing they could evoke different emotions and meanings out of the film. This new editing technique would later open so many doors in film, but also create and interest in filmakers to study the viewers response to their films.
