Battleship Potemkin with The Imperfect Orchestra
Potemkin 3

Dir. S.M. Eisenstein, Soviet Union, 1925, 66 mins, Cert: PG.

Eisenstein’s hugely influential masterpiece and one of the most famous silent films ever made will be accompanied by a new live score created and performed by The Imperfect Orchestra, an eclectic ensemble of musicians who mix classical and modern instruments.

Focusing on the naval mutiny of the failed 1905 Soviet Revolution, the ‘Odessa Steps’ sequence is still recognised as one of the most important, innovative and inflammatory scenes created in cinema and remains as shocking and provocative as when it was first screened.
