Battleship Potemkin (1925)
Revolution and Realism: Films of the Soviet Union
Consistently listed as one of the most important films of all time, Battleship Potemkin dramatizes a historic event that occurred in 1905, when Russian crew members mutinied against their unjust tsarist commanders. Battleship Potemkin showcases the effectiveness of cinema as a propaganda tool within the Soviet Union and beyond; many films, including The Godfather and The Untouchables, have paid homage to its Odessa Steps sequence. This screening will also feature a scholarly introduction by Dr. Jason Strudler Mellon Assistant Professor of Russian at Vanderbilt. Directed by Sergei Eisenstein. NR. 1925. 35 mm. Silent with English intertitles. 75 minutes.
