On Nov 10, 90 years after the first screening of Sergei Eisenstein’s iconic ‘The Battleship Potemkin’, Kino Klassika Foundation hosted a screening at the Electric Cinema in partnership with Fabergé to support a unique exhibition of Eisenstein drawings in London in 2016. The exhibition is the cornerstone of an Eisenstein festival arranged to explore the great film director’s legacy in contemporary film and culture.
