Review

Commissioned by the Soviet government, Sergei M. Eisenstein directed The Battleship Potemkin in 1925 for the 20th anniversary of 1905 Russian Revolution. In 1905, Russia was undergoing a social and financial crisis after losing Russo-Japanese War. The mutiny of Potemkin crew against the officers on the Black Sea in front of Odessa highlighted the minds of the citizens who fought against the political violence of Tsar Nicholas II. The film is divided into five acts: Men and Maggots; Drama on the Deck; A Dead Man Calls for Justice; The Odessa Steps; and One against All. Unlike what really happened, the rebellion ends successfully in the film. In addition to silent version, music was adopted to support the film. Upon Eisenstein’s request, German composer Edmund Meisel composed the original score in 1926 which is still considered as a masterpiece. During the 17th Jeonju International Film Festival, the exhibition of Eisenstein’s sketches will be held and a Cinematology Class will be given by Naum Kleiman, a specialist in Sergei Eisenstein, Eisenstein-Centre director, and former manager of the Moscow State Central Cinema Museum.
