Founded in 1924 by a group of filmmakers led by Sergei Eisenstein and Lev Kuleshov, AARC aimed to establish and maintain ideological control over the making of films. Its members included most of leading Soviet filmmakers, including Pudovkin, Vertov, Kozintsev, Trauberg, Yutkevich, and Ermler. The organization set up branches in nearly all film studios and published the weekly newspaper Kino and the magazines Sovietsky ekran and Kino I kultura. AARC not only promoted and monitored proletarian ideology in films, but confronted technical challenges, such as the introduction of sound as well. The collection includes correspondence, memoranda, notes and minutes of meetings and the organization's periodicals.
