Useful Notes / Gos Kino

The USSR State Committee for Cinematography (Государственный комитет по кинематографии СССР Gosudarstvenniy komitet po kinematografii SSSR) or Goskino was the Soviet government body created in 1963 to regulate film in the USSR. It frequently censored directors such as Andrei Konchalovsky and Andrei Tarkovsky for works deemed too critical or depressing.
