Join North Brooklyn DSA for a screening of Sergei Eisenstein's Battleship Potemkin! Released in 1925 to commemorate the Russian Revolution of 1905, Eisenstein's film is a classic of Soviet and world cinema. Featuring the legendary "Odessa Steps" sequence, the film is a timeless depiction of workers rebelling against their unjust oppression.

The screening will be prefaced by a brief introduction for context and background and followed by optional time for discussion. The film will start around 7 pm. Beer and popcorn will be available by donation.
