Synopsis
Full of cinematic conventions still used today, Eisenstein's first full-length film depicts the story of a 1912 strike by factory workers in Tsarist Russia, and its brutal suppresion by authorities, through 'dialectic montage' via the use of cancature, visual metaphor, and shock cutting. Made with members of the Proletkult Theatre, the film was a vital part of the avant-garde Constrictivist art movement in the Soviet Union of the 1920.
