Sergei M. Eisenstein: The Language of Cinema
October: Ten Days That Shook the World
Co-directed with Grigori Aleksandrov, Eisenstein’s October is an epic recreation of the events that led to the storming of the Winter Palace in October 1917. A stunning achievement in cinema, October is powerful, personal and controversial – initially banned, with its first British screenings only taking place in 1935.
