Welcome to the companion website for The Early Film Music of Dmitry Shostakovich by Joan Titus. This companion website features video clips that cannot be made available in a book.

This site is designed to share a few excerpts from the films that are discussed in the book. Each clip specifically references themes or arguments in the book and are necessarily brief. Since the sound quality of films from the 1930s was variable, headphones are recommended to hear the sound/music in detail. There are no clips for New Babylon since it is a silent film and tends to exist in the abstract.
