October (Ten Days that Shook the World)


The University of Arizona Department of Russian and Slavic Studies invites you to a take part in a film series commemorating the 100-year anniversary of the Russian Revolution. Join us for two screenings of films from legendary Soviet directors Sergei Eisenstein and Vsevolod Pudovkin.

Featuring an introduction and post-film panel discussion with Professor Douglas Weiner.

Commissioned by the Soviet authorities in 1928, Ten Days that Shook the World is one of Eisenstein’s best known experimental works as well as an exemplary showcase of Soviet revolutionary ideology. A re-telling of the the revolutionary events that rocked the Russian imperial capital of St. Petersburg (then Petrograd) in 1917, Eisenstein’s film is notable for its documentary aesthetic and dramatic uses of montage technique. (Dir. by Sergei Eisenstein, 1928, Soviet Union, 95 mins., Not Rated)
