The event will centre around the filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein’s representations of Russian revolutionary movements of 1905 and 1917.
At one level, the programme will bring closer to sixth form students the social and political background of revolutionary events in early-20th-century Russia; at another level, the programme will raise the issue of how visual representations of historical events shape our understanding of these events.
The programme will comprise the screening of one of the most iconic films about the 1905 Russian Revolution, Sergei Eisenstein’s Battleship Potemkin (1925) and a follow-up workshop lecture by Dr Dušan Radunović (Durham University) on the figuration of revolutionary events in Eisenstein’s film.
