To kick off a month of classic Russian film, we sink our teeth into Sergei Einstein;  the Grandfather of modern montage. Today’s mash-ups and dub jobs can find their roots among a handful of Russian filmmakers who could not always afford the production costs of filming and instead went through the archives and told new stories that are celebrated and respected today. We will bring you much more on this subject throughout the month but for now enjoy Autobiography, a film about Eisenstein that is somewhat dishonest with its title.
