Description

Meticulously working from Sergei Eisenstein’s diaries, director Peter Greenaway uses his honed aesthetic to dramatically imagine “ten days that shook Eisenstein” in the form of his sexual awakening and artistic frustration. In 1931, Eisenstein traveled to Guanajuato, Mexico to shoot a film where he succumbs to his desires and indulges in an affair with his male guide Palomino Cañedo. Greenaway’s film is notable for brazenly bringing Eisenstein out of the closet (something that Vladimir Putin rejected after the film’s premiere in Berlin), but it is perhaps more importantly a vivid document of the social, political, and artistic pulse of the moment that surrounded Eisenstein at the height of his career.


Press

"An eye-opening look at one of cinema's most respected figures, celebrating the sexual awakening that awaited the repressed Russian helmer in Mexico." - Variety
