Eisenstein Classic Battleship Potemkin To Screen At Heritage House Sunday

Tuesday, August 8, 2017

The Eisenstein classic Battleship Potemkin will screen at the Heritage House this Sunday at 6:30 p.m. 

Admission is free.  The screening will be preceded by an (optional) potluck dinner at 5 p.m. with the Heritage House Film Club.

Synopsis:

Enraged with the deplorable conditions on board the Battleship Potemkin, the ship's loyal crew contemplate the unthinkable — mutiny! Seizing control of the Potemkin and raising the red flag of revolution, the sailors' revolt soon becomes the rallying point for a Russian populace ground under the boot heels of the Czar's Cossacks. 

When ruthless White Russian cavalry arrive to crush the rebellion on the sandstone Odessa Steps, the most famous and oft-quoted film sequence in cinema history is born! 

This Eisenstein classic is now presented fully restored with a contemporary electronic score performed by Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe, better known to music lovers as The Pet Shop Boys.

 
(1925 / Silent w/contemporary score / black & white / Not Rated / Running time: 1 hr., 20 min.)
