Золотой век России (1880-1940)

Scenes from ‘October: Ten Days That Shook the World’ (1927), directed by Sergei Eisenstein, starring Vladimir Popov, Vasily Nikandrov, and Eduard Tisse.

Created in honor of the 10th year of the Union’s existence, Eisenstein’s work recalls the events of the revolution and overthrow of the provisional government. The film notably depicts the leader of the provisional government, Aleksandr Kerensky, as an incompetent and incapable leader as well as Eisenstein’s use of the ‘intellectual montage’ where he employs various objects as allegories to the plot events.
