Frist Center for the Visual Arts says
Consistently listed as one of the most important films of all time, Battleship Potemkin dramatizes a historic event that occurred in 1905, when Russian crew members mutinied against their unjust tsarist commanders. Battleship Potemkin showcases the effectiveness of cinema as a propaganda tool within the Soviet Union and beyond; many films, including The Godfather and The Untouchables, have paid homage to its Odessa Steps sequence. This screening will also featurea scholarly introduction by Dr. Jason Strudler, Mellon Assistant Professor of Russian at Vanderbilt.
