Prof. Seymour Chatman will introduce Eisenstein’s penultimate silent film, made to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the October Revolution. Eisenstein noted of his own film: “Potemkin has something of the Greek Temple, October is more baroque. Certain parts of it are purely experimental, using methods of intellectual creation which I believe will be developed. Pesonally, from the point of view of experiment, I find October more interesting.”
