It’s the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution and Lucem House will be screening the story of a pivotal moment in the lead up to it: the 1905 mutiny by the crew of the battleship Potemkin.
Fed up with extreme cruelty and maggot-ridden meat rations, the sailors stage a violent mutiny which in turns sparks an abortive citizens’ revolt against the Czarist regime. The film’s centerpiece is staged on the Odessa Steps, where in 1905 the Czar’s Cossacks methodically shot down rioters and innocent bystanders alike.
History, and the Bolsheviks, would judge the regime harshly.
