Lenin’s Love Child – Ten Days That Shook the World at the Polish Club

Barcham 16 October 2013

So this is a little bit interesting, the Polish club are playing the the classic 1928 Sergei Eisenstein war film Ten Days That Shook the World accompanied by a live band.

That sounds awesome, check out their Facebook Page for more info.

This Sergei Eisenstein masterpiece has been given a contemporary live sound track by Canberra’s local sonic agitators, Lenin’s Love Child.

The film is a Soviet silent propaganda film by Sergei Eisenstein and Grigori Aleksandrov, also known by the title, October. The film is a silent classic, a celebratory dramatization of the 1917 October Revolution.

Eisenstein was the first to employ many of the techniques which have become hallmarks of modern filmmaking.

This rare 16mm print will be projected as it was originally intended, as film. The show involves multiple 16mm projectors, with ‘Ten Days’ being flanked by other supporting material, ranging from WWI footage through to the glorious days of soviet grandeur in the 1970’s & 80’s. The heady mix off multiple screens and thumping good melodies combine to make this a show you wont easily forget.
