Battleship Potemkin (PG)

Academy at Regent St.

Originally conceived as part of a cycle of films commemorating the revolutionary events of 1905, Sergei Eisenstein’s Battleship Potemkin recreates in documentary-style the failed mutiny of the Black Sea fleet and the subsequent massacre of the people of Odessa. Innovative cinematography and editing techniques heighten the horrific nature of events.

Although banned outright in many countries outside Soviet Russia, the film became an international sensation, and has had a lasting impact on world cinema. The arresting sequence of the massacre of civilians on Odessa’s steps is one of the most celebrated, analysed, and quoted in cinema history.

Edmond Rostand’s masterwork is adapted by Martin Crimp, with direction by Jamie Lloyd (Betrayal). This classic play will be brought to life with linguistic ingenuity to celebrate Cyrano’s powerful and resonant resistance against overwhelming odds.

Hitler, Stalin and Mr. Jones image

Hitler, Stalin and Mr. Jones (12A)

Followed by a Q&A with director George Carey and producer Teresa Cherfas

In August 1935, a brilliant young Welshman called Gareth Jones was murdered by bandits on the remote Mongolian steppe. In three short years as a rookie journalist, he had infuriated the Soviet Union, hobnobbed with Hitler and Goebbels, been threatened by the Japanese military and disowned by his one time benefactor, David Lloyd George. Was his death bad luck or the work of secret agents?

George Carey’s search for answers takes him across Europe, into the Soviet archives and on to the very place where Gareth Jones’s body was found.  His fascinating film uncovers the strange tale of a neglected hero whose troubles started when he put his name to the story no one else would then touch: the lethal famine that Stalin was inflicting on the farmlands of Ukraine.
