EISENSTEIN IN GUANAJUATO

DIRECTOR: Peter Greenaway - NETHERLANDS

Greenaway’s lively, provocative film follows the great Soviet filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein (Finnish actor Elmer Bäck) in his travels to the Mexican city of Guanajuato in 1931. Following the international success of Battleship Potemkin, Eisenstein goes to Mexico to shoot a new film, “Que viva México!,” having recently been spurned by Hollywood. He soon falls under Mexico’s spell and that of his guide Palomino Cañedo, and opens up to his suppressed fears as he embraces a new world of sensual pleasures and possibilities that will shape the future of his art. “An outrageously unconventional and deliriously profane biopic.” – Variety. In Spanish and English with English subtitles. (105 mins.)

 

PRECEEDED BY: Night Weaver, Joan Gratz | Portland.  A tapestry of computer mandalas and intricate animated weavings. (6 mins.)

Filmography: Nightwatching (2007), The Pillow Book (1996), The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover (1989), A Zed & Two Noughts (1985)
