Battleship Potemkin : from the series "The year 1905"( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in No Linguistic content and Russian and held by 703 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sergei Eisenstein was commissioned by the Soviet government to make a movie commemorating the failed uprising of 1905, a mere 20 years after the actual incident. Eisenstein duly hails as heroes the people whose actions were regarded as traitorous in 1905. It began when sailors on the Potemkin protested that the meat they were being fed was maggot infested. In response, the commander ordered that ten random sailors to be executed by firing squad, at which the crew turned on the officers and killed them all. The oppressed people of Odessa joined the revolt to show their rejection of the czarist regime--which sent Cossack troops--who then mowed down both rioters and innocent citizens without mercy. The film was banned at various times in the US and France, and for a longer time than any other film in British history; even Stalin banned it, at a time when mutiny was against the party line. It remains remarkable for the way it builds tension over a brisk 69 minutes, and in the right setting with the right audience, can still reveal its inflammatory power

Seizing control of the Potemkin and raising the red flag of revolution, the sailors' revolt becomes the rallying point for a Russian populace ground under the boot heels of the Czar's Cossacks. When ruthless White Russian cavalry arrives to crush the rebellion on the sandstone Odessa Steps, the most famous and most quoted film sequence in cinema history is born

Panzerkreuzer Potemkin das Jahr 1905( Visual )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Russland 1905: Mit der Niederlage im Krieg gegen Japan breitet sich die soziale und politische Krise auf das gesamte Zarenreich aus. Die Matrosen der "Potemkin", die im Hafen von Odessa am Schwarzen Meer liegt, sind die anhaltenden Erniedrigungen der Offiziere leid und meutern. Unter der Führung des Matrosen Wakulintschuk gelingt der Aufstand zwar, dennoch wird der Matrose später ermordet. Die Nachricht von der Meuterei verbreitet sich wie ein Lauffeuer auf die Bevölkerung von Odessa. Die Menschen strömen in den Hafen und versammeln sich auf der monumentalen Hafentreppe. Diese Treppe wird zum Schauplatz des grausamen Gegenschlags des Zaren-Regimes. Der Stummfilm-Klassiker gilt bis heute gerade wegen der berühmten "Treppenszene" als ein Meilenstein der Filmgeschichte und wurde u.a. 1958 auf der Brüsseler Weltausstellung zum "Besten Film aller Zeiten" gekürt sowie 2003 in den Filmkanon aufgenommen, der jungen Menschen das Filmgenre näher bringen soll.
