Centennial of the Russian Revolution! Digital Restoration from Europe!

OCTOBER: TEN DAYS THAT SHOOK THE WORLD

USSR | 1928 | Sergei Eisenstein, Grigori Aleksandrov

OCTOBER: TEN DAYS THAT SHOOK THE WORLD

Statues are razed, palaces stormed, and governments toppled in Eisenstein’s masterful follow-up to Potemkin—a ten-years-after re-creation of the Bolshevik Revolution. This dazzling and innovative work ran into political censorship in the USSR (references to Trotsky had to be removed) and prompted the first official charges of “formalism” (being too arty and elitist) against the great director. Digital restoration from the Filmmuseum München, Germany; special thanks to Stafanie Hausmann. Thanks also to Deborah Girdwood, Walker Art Center. Silent with music track and English subtitles. DCP. 119 min.

Special admission $11; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $8. No passes, twofers, or radio winners.
