About A World to Win
A World to Win A Century of Revolution on Screen takes its title from Marx and Engels’ declaration that the proletariat have a world to win. Beginning with Sergei Eisenstein’s iconic Battleship Potemkin, eight iconic films explore what revolution might mean to different filmmakers at different times and places across the 20th Century and is accompanied by introductions, talks and programme notes from leading filmmakers, academics, critics and journalists.
The season culminates with the British premiere of the Munich Film Museum restoration of Eisenstein’s masterpiece, October, on the first day after the centenary of the Russian Revolution, 26th October 2017 in collaboration with the London Symphony Orchestra and European Film Philharmonie at the Barbican Centre, London.
