abstract
Silent film reenactment detailing the events leading up to the Russian Revolution. The film was commissioned to Sergei Eisenstein to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Russian Revolution. Eisenstein chose to capture the spirit of the era by focusing on one place at one point in time: Petrograd between February and October 1917, and using a political perspective. The original version was heavily censored by Stalin, and released in the US as 'Ten days that shook the world'. In 1967 a full restoration was made, and a music score by Shostakovich and sound effects track were added.
language note
Silent film with music and a sound effects track added.
