IFI SCHOOLS: BATTLESHIP POTEMKIN

In the centenary of the Russian Revolution, we are showing this newly restored edition of Sergei Eisenstein’s silent classic with original score. The story of the sailors’ uprising offers a fascinating insight into both Soviet propaganda and film art. Employing innovative ‘montage’ film editing, the legendary filmmaker produced a gripping tale of collectivism that would influence generations of filmmakers. A must-see for students interested in film, politics or history.
