Classic Protest Songs from the Smithsonian Folkways

Woody Guthrie, Lead Belly, Janis Ian, Big Bill Broonzy, Pete Seeger, Barbara Dane, Guy Carawan, Phil Ochs, and other marquee artists let their voices ring out with calls for peace and justice.

Eisenstein – Battleship Potemkin

Directed by Sergei M. Eisenstein

The story of the mutiny on the Russian ship Prince Potemkin during the 1905 uprising against the Tsarist regime. Battleship Potemkin is considered one of the most important and influential films of all time, as well as possibly Eisenstein’s greatest work. Its revolutionary zeal led to it being banned in many countries, particularly fascist Germany, Italy and Spain, and even Britain up until 1954! The film brought Eisenstein’s theories of cinema art to the world in a powerful showcase; his emphasis on montage, his stress of intellectual contact, and his treatment of the mass instead of the individual as the protagonist.

Get Potemkin and another of Eisenstein’s films The General Line on one DVD for $20(+ p&h).

Or how about eight films by Sergei Eisenstein on four DVDs for just $60  (+ p&h). The other films are: October 1917, The Strike, Alexander Nevski, Que Viva Mexico!, Ivan the Terrible (Parts 1 & 2).
