The season will feature titles including Battleship Potemkin (1925), I Am Cuba (Mikhail Kalatozov, 1964), Weekend (Jean Luc Godard, 1967), Black God White Devil (Gauber Rocha, 1964), Z (Costa Gavras, 1969), Danton (Andrzej Wajda, 1983), Land and Freedom (Ken Loach, 1995), Novecento (Bernardo Bertolucci, 1976), and conclude with a screening of Eisenstein’s October with the London Symphony Orchestra at the Barbican. It will also include the UK premiere of the once-banned Beginning of an Unknown Century (1967) on International Womens Day, to commemorate female Russian filmmaker Larisa Shepitko.
