Sunday, November 10 - October, Ten Days That Shook The World

with live musical accompaniment with local rock-orchestra Госкино
8:30pm doors/9:00pm show

October is a fast-paced, stylistically stunning and often hilarious movie. So fast -paced in fact that it is often cited that more people were killed in the making of October than during the events it depicts. The action and editing make for a adrenaline-fueled ride through the early days of the Soviet Revolution. The movie dramatizes the year leading up to and including the events in October that culminated in the Bolshevik Party taking political and military control of Russia and creating the Soviet Union. Soviet filmmaking was reaching an aesthetic apex when this movie was made and Eisenstein employs “Intellectual Montage” in October to an create a powerful, emotional and historically nuanced cinema experience. Propaganda Cinema at its finest! Olympia's own Soviet glam rock orchestra, Госкино, will be providing brash and bold musical accompaniment.
