Howdy folks,

Our collab with Ras Moshe heads to Liverpool for the April 27th FESTIVAL OF MOVEMENT ON SCREEN opening! Check it out:


Eisenstein spent a lot of time thinking about the uses and implications of montage. Let’s have a look at his five kinds of montage.

METRIC MONTAGE:

TONAL MONTAGE

RHYTHMIC MONTAGE:

OVERTONAL MONTAGE

INTELLECTUAL MONTAGE

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.

The Tunnel: Featuring Sxip Shirey

Musical Interlude number 2! Music very kindly lent by harmonica aficionado Sxip Shirey, animation and gratuity provided by Cat Gilbert and some badly abused footage of 1950s volcanoes. Result? Eruption of gratuity!
