Landmarks of Soviet Cinema: Battleship Potemkin

Landmarks of Soviet Cinema: <i>Battleship Potemkin</i>



Sat., Oct. 7, 7:30 p.m. 2017

Even if you've never seen the famous Odessa Steps sequence in Battleship Potemkin, you've likely seen its influence a dozen times or more (Brian De Palma's hat-tip in The Untouchables being the most explicit). Sergei Eisenstein's vigorous restaging of the historic naval uprising remains a film-school staple for its masterful montage and political fervor. It will screen at the Aero to kick off the American Cinematheque's Landmarks of Soviet Cinema series. As if that weren't enough of a draw, it will be followed immediately by documentary The Man With the Movie Camera, Dziga Vertov's kaleidoscopic city symphony, which was recently voted the eighth greatest film of all time in Sight & Sound's international critics' poll.
