Battleship Potemkin
Броненосец «Потёмкин»

Originally conceived as part of a cycle of films commemorating the revolutionary events of 1905, Sergei Eisenstein’s Battleship Potemkin recreates in documentary-style the failed mutiny of the Black Sea fleet and the subsequent massacre of the people of Odessa. Innovative cinematography and editing techniques heighten the horrific nature of events. Banned outright in many countries outside Soviet Russia, the film became an international sensation, and has had a lasting impact on world cinema.

New score composed by Max Reinhardt and the Instant Orchestra.
