(1925) dir Sergei Eisenstein w/Ivan Bobrov, Vladimir Barsky, Aleksandr Antonov, Grigori Aleksandrov [69 min; 35mm]
A landmark film by any definition, Sergei Eisenstein’s BATTLESHIP POTEMKIN tells the stirring story of a mutiny against inhumane conditions aboard a Russian battleship that soon leads to an uprising on shore in the port of Odessa. One of the most influential silent films ever made, Eisenstein’s visually rich filmmaking talents also lead to one of the most famous climaxes in all of cinema: the quashing of the rebellion on the Odessa steps.
