Rated NR · 73 minutes · 1925

The story of a strike by Russian workers circa 1912 and its brutal suppression by the authorities, this 1924 film by the 26-year-old Sergei M. Eisenstein was his first full-blown feature. Though flawed and schematic, it's nonetheless a mighty achievement for a young man with primitive equipment and no extensive training in filmmaking. Masterfully photographed by Edouard Tisse ("the Swede"), the film lays the groundwork for Eisenstein's great Potemkin.
Director: Sergei Eisenstein
Cast: Grigori Aleksandrov, Maxim Strauch, Mikhail Gomarov, Aleksandr Antonov and Judith Glizer
