Kino Klassika present a century of revolt and rebellion on screen

Date posted: 07.02.2017

Kino Klassika, working in partnership with Regent Street Cinema and the Barbican, are bringing audiences a new season of world films to mark the centenary of the October Revolution. A World to Win: A Century of Revolution on Screen is backed by Film Hub London as part of our Exhibitor Activation Programme.

Inspired by the Russian revolutionary filmmaking of the 1920s, the programme opens with Sergei Eisenstein’s Battleship Potemkin, the iconic 1925 film inspired by the revolution, and goes on to examine a century of global revolution on film.

Bringing together provocative films such as Mikhail Kalatozov’s I am Cuba, Jean-Luc Godard’s The Weekend, and Ken Loach’s Land and Freedom, A World to Win will also include the UK premiere of the once-banned Beginning of an Unknown Century. The film will be screened on International Womens’ Day, to commemorate female Russian filmmaker Larisa Shepitko.

This explosive and thought-provoking season will culminate with another of Eisenstein’s masterpieces, October, screening on the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution, accompanied by London Symphony Orchestra at the Barbican Centre.
