Flatpack Film Festival
Dir: Sergei Eisenstein
USSR 1925, 75 mins
We’ll be screening Sergei Eisenstein’s famous Battleship Potemkin. Another landmark of Russian cinema, the film dramatises the mutiny that transpired aboard the battleship in 1905, when the crew rebelled against their officers of the Tsarist regime. A work of revolutionary propaganda, Battleship Potemkin includes the celebrated ‘Odessa steps’ scene, which depicts the infamous attack on civilians by machine-like Tsarist troops.
The screening will be accompanied by Cyrus Gabrysch on piano.
Time 7:30 p.m.
