STRIKE [Eisenstein 1925]
Eisenstein's first feature film the story of a bitter strike under Tzarist rule in 1903. Made just before Battleship Potemkin, this film introduces his style of dynamic juxtaposed editing, the focus on the individual and the crowd. Waves of movement, and poltical idealism.
Before the feature we'll also watch "Gulmov's Diary" a 4 minute short that was Eisenstein's first film.
