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.
