Kino Klassica presnt Sergei Eisenstein's

OCTOBER

BARBICAN WITH THE LSO: THURSDAY 26 OCTOBER 2017


 

Our friends at Kino Klassika present Sergei Eisenstein's 1927 silent film masterpiece, October, to mark the centenary of the Russian Revolution. The film recreates the events of October 1917, and will be accompanied by the London Symphony Orchestra. The screening will take place 100 years to the date after the start of the October Revolution in Russia.

Eisenstein's October is an epic recreation of the events that led to the storming of the Winter Palace in October 1917. On the basis of the success of Battleship Potemkin (1924), the film was commissioned by the Soviet government to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Revolution. The film occupies a unique place in Eisenstein's work: its powerful, highly personal and controversial propagandist images led to widespread banning, with the first screenings in Britain only in 1935.

This is an extraordinary opportunity for London audiences to see a newly restored version of the film screened at the Berlin Film Festival in 2012, alongside the British premiere of a new restoration Edmund Meisel's original 1928 score.
