Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Elem Germanovich Klimov (9 July 1933 - 26 October 2003) was a Soviet Russian film director. He studied at VGIK, and was married to film director Larisa Shepitko. He is best known in the West for his final film, 1985's Come and See ( ), a powerful tale of a teenage boy in German-occupied Byelorussia during the German-Soviet War, but he also directed dark comedies, children's movies, and historical pictures. Elem Klimov was born in Stalingrad (now Volgograd) in July 1933. His parents were staunch communists and his first name was an acronym derived from the names of Engels, Lenin and Marx. During the Battle of Stalingrad, he, his mother and his baby brother were evacuated from their home and crossed the Volga on a makeshift raft. Klimov would later draw on these experiences for his 1985 film Come and See.
