Sergei Eisenstein’s iconic silent film Battleship Potemkin (1925) is acknowledged as one of the greatest films of all time. It dramatises the naval mutiny in 1905 when the crew of the Russian battleship Potyomkin rebelled against their brutal Tsarist officers, precipitating a street demonstration and a massacre. The film’s startling visual language and unforgettable sequences delivered a blow to the solar plexus of the film industry and changed the history of cinema.
