October / Oktyabr (COLLECTORS EDITION) 1928
This Collectors Edition has been digitally restored to improve picture and sound quality without degrading the look and feel of this historic example of early cinema.
Commissioned by the Soviet government, October, was filmed to commemorate the ten year anniversary of the 1917 October Revolution. Filmed in documentary style, it depicts events starting with the end of the monarchy in February 1917 through the Revolution in October.
When the Soviet government commissioned two movies to be made about the October Revolution, Sergei Eisenstein was chosen to head up one due to his enormous success with The Battleship Potemkin. Eisenstein used more of his ground-breaking film techniques to pull the viewer into the movie. Although a silent film, the musical score and the cinematography combine to create a film strong in emotion.
