Directed by Sergei Eisenstein
One of the most original debuts
in film history, Strike is a brilliant mixture of agit-prop
techniques and comic-grotesque stylization in the telling of a factory
workers' strike in Czarist Russia in 1912 and the brutal suppression of the
strike. A remarkable achievement from one of the central figures in the
history of cinema. Silent, with music by the Alloy Orchestra. Digitally
remastered from an archive 35mm print. 82 minutes.
