Russian filmmaker, Grigori Kozintsev was among the founders of the notorious Factory of Eccentric Actors. He next move on to collaborate with director Leonid Trauberg in such films as the satirical New Babylon (1931). The two remained together until just after producing the post-war drama Plain People, a 1945 film that was not released by authorities until the mid '50s. Kozintsev and Trauberg split up shortly after the government banned the film. As a solo director Kozintsev became known for making faithful film adaptations of popular literature including the works of Shakespeare and Cervantes. His 1964 adaptation of Hamlet is still considered one of the best.
