The flagship event of the Peninsula Arts Revolutions film programme.
Eisenstein’s hugely influential masterpiece and one of the most famous silent films ever made will be accompanied by a new live score created and performed by The Imperfect Orchestra, an eclectic ensemble of musicians who mix classical and modern instruments.
This 1925 Soviet classic is one of the most famous silent films ever made. Focusing on the naval mutiny of the failed 1905 Soviet Revolution, the ‘Odessa Steps’ sequence is still recognised as one of the most important, innovative and inflammatory scenes created in cinema and remains as shocking and provocative as when it was first screened.
The Imperfect Orchestra, formed in 2013, is an eclectic ensemble of musicians whose aim is to bring the experience of live music accompaniment to film and many other visual art forms. The Imperfect Orchestra mixes classical and modern instruments, writing original scores and soundtracks inspired by a wide range of musical genres, in collaboration with filmmakers and visual artists.
