Battleship Potemkin (Change to advertised feature)

Dir: Sergei Eisenstein
USSR 1925, 75 mins
Cert: PG*

Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, we will no longer be showing Man with a Movie Camera at Birmingham Cathedral on Saturday 21 March. But fear not, we’re not leaving you high and dry; instead we’ll be screening Sergei Eisenstein’s famous Battleship Potemkin in its place. Another landmark of Russian cinema, the film dramatises the mutiny that transpired aboard the battleship in 1905, when the crew rebelled against their officers of the Tsarist regime. A work of revolutionary propaganda, Battleship Potemkin includes the celebrated ‘Odessa steps’ scene, which depicts the infamous attack on civilians by machine-like Tsarist troops.

The screening will be accompanied by Cyrus Gabrysch on piano.

Apologies to those disappointed by this change to the advertised programme. We hope to bring Man With a Movie Camera to the festival at a future date, and will be in touch with all those who have pre-booked tickets for this event.
