Yale Film Colloquium
RED CENTURY: THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION ON FILM
October - RED CENTURY: THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION ON FILM SCREENING
OCTOBER (directed by Sergei Eisenstein and Grigori Aleksandrov,1928)
The most famous and the most controversial of all film commemorations of the 1917 revolution, OCTOBER was both the first film to land Eisenstein in trouble with the Soviet authorities, and arguably the work in which his provocative ideas about “intellectual montage” were most fully realized. A work of unique historical importance, OCTOBER is one of the most formally elaborate, conceptually rich, and emotionally charged films of the entire silent era. PRESENTED WITH LIVE MUSIC BY SILENT FILM PIANIST PETER KRASINSKI!
