Roman Lazarevich Karmen (16 November 1906 Odessa – 28 Ap...展开ril 1978 Moscow) was a Soviet General, a war camera-man and film director and one of the most influential figures in documentary film making; he could be considered USSR's answer to Leni Riefenstahl.
Karmen was a true believer in Communism, and roamed the world portraying the Spanish Civil War, the battles for Moscow and Leningrad in World War II, the First Indochina War, and the rise of Communism in South East Asia in the 50's and in South America during the 60's.
Karmen was also granted personal access to the emergence of Communist leaders China's Mao Tse-Tung, Vietnam's Ho Chi Minh, Cuba's Fidel Castro and Chile's Salvador Allende.
Karmen's documentary methods were both influential and controversial, his renowned technical ability captured the emotion of war and the repetition of key shots and framings between film projects became a hallmark, but he would often blur the lines of Cinéma vérité by restaging key battles, including the liberation of Leningrad (1942) and the siege of Dien Bien Phu (1955), and reconstructing the 1956 landing in Cuba of revolutionaries led by Fidel Castro as a first person documentary.
In 2001, French documentary directors Dominique Chapuis and Patrick Barbéris produced a 90mn investigation about Karmen, titled "Roman Karmen, A Cineast In The Revolution's Service". The following year Barbéris (his co-author Chapuis passed by in late 2001) published a critical portrait "Roman Karmen, A Red Legend".
