Battleship Potemkin

Friday, November 20 - Sunday, November 22, 2015

35mm print

“The most famous and most analyzed—not the least by its creator, Sergei Eisenstein—film of all time. Let it suffice to say that if you’ve heard something about “montage” (the joining of filmed images to suggest an idea, create a mood, or evoke a theme), this is the work that defines it. The film records the birth of revolutionary consciousness among the crew members of the battleship Potemkin, anchored at Odessa in 1905. Its appearance in 1925 shook the film world, and many filmmakers still haven’t recovered.” – Chicago Reader
