Kino Klassika collaborates with the Centre Pompidou to celebrate the publication of Le Ciné-Œil de la Révolution. Écrits sur le Cinéma, a new French-language study of Dziga Vertov with a day of talks, lectures by a panel of Vertov specialists and screenings in Paris on December 20th.
Kino Klassika supports the eagerly awaited publication of Eisenstein Works on Paper, the first comprehensive study of the extensive yet rarely seen graphic works of Sergei Eisenstein. This monograph of over 400 drawings traces Eisenstein’s development as draftsman from early childhood sketches, to later designs for theatre and film sets to the abstract and experimental works of his late career.
Marking the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution, Kino Klassika presents Sergei Eisenstein’s 1928 film masterpiece, October, which recreates the events of October 1917. This British premiere gives us an opportunity to see the film accompanied by music originally composed by Edmund Meisel with the London Symphony Orchestra and conductor Frank Strobel.
