Join Frank Biletz and Julia Denne at the Newberry for a Free Program on Tuesday, September 10, 2019

Poster for Sergei Eisenstein's "October - Ten Days That Shook The World"

Join us for a special presentation on Sergei Eisenstein’s 1927 film, October, sponsored by the Adult Education Seminars Program at the Newberry.

Produced to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the Russian Revolution, Sergei Eisenstein’s film October has become a lens through which the world perceives the political upheaval of November 1917. Restaging historical events on original locations with dramatic exaggeration and satiric mockery, the film raises ongoing questions about the remembrance and representation of historical events and the use of film as propaganda.

Drawing on our upcoming seminars,”The Russian Revolution” and “Panorama of Soviet Life in the 1920s,” Frank and I will screen excerpts from Eisenstein’s film and discuss the complicated legacy of the Russian Revolution.
