October: Ten Days that Shook the World (1928) 

A re-telling of the revolutionary events that rocked the Russian imperial capital of St. Petersburg in 1917, Sergei Eisenstein's film is notable for its documentary aesthetic and dramatic uses of montage technique. Professor Douglas Weiner, a Russian specialist in the UA Department of History, will give an introduction to the film and lead a discussion afterward. 

In Russian with English subtitles. 

 

Monday, October 23rd - 7:00PM 

Storm Over Asia (1928)

Filmed on location in the Siberian region of Buryatia, Vsevolod Pudovkin's Storm Over Asia tells the story of a poor Mongol fur trapper who escapes the indignities of Western imperialism and makes a violent entry into a new life as a revolutionary. Joining us to introduce the film and lead discussion is Dr. Rae Dachille, a Buddhism specialist in the UA departments of Religious Studies and Classics and East Asian Studies.
