(p.1) Introduction
In Excess
University of Chicago Press

This chapter discusses the theme of this volume which is about Sergei Eisenstein's unfinished film ¡Que Viva Mexico!. Though Eisenstein never lived to see any of his footage and never edited a single sequence from it, this film became the most famous of the many projects that Eisenstein never fully realized. This volume is conceived as an investigation into the way Eisenstein's texts, the body of the unfinished film with all the materials surrounding it including scripts, notes and letters. It also argues that Eisenstein's modernist/avant-garde theories and practices embody the same qualities and partake of the same cultures, despite the difference in their respective receptions.

Keywords:   Sergei Eisenstein, ¡Que Viva Mexico, scripts, modernist theories, avant-garde theories
