Battleship Potemkin

Battleship Potemkin


Film screening with live score by Jan Bang and and Matt Calvert (Three Trapped Tigers)

It’s 1905 and the crew of the Potemkin are electrified by news of a revolution; the lower decks strive to replicate it in a mutiny against their brutal officers. As word of their revolt spreads, the people of nearby Odessa gather to show their support for the crew; the ensuing chaos has become one of cinema’s most iconic sequences.

Battleship Potemkin is screened with a propulsive new score performed live by composer/electronic musician Jan Bang and guitarist Matt Calvert (Three Trapped Tigers).
