Strike( Visual )

22 editions published between 1925 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first film directed by the great Soviet director Sergei Eisenstein. Eisenstein revolutionized filmmaking with his inspired editing techniques, however his artistic temperament consistently brought him into conflict with Stalin and the Soviet bureaucracy. Strike was attacked in the Soviet Union and officially declared "lost" under Stalin. Due to attacks from Soviet authorities, Eisenstein himself had to renounce the film. Eisenstein conceived this film not as the portrayal of an actual historical event but as a generalised picture of the proletariat masses as collective hero. Strike is a series of sketches containing Eisenstein's first experiments with montage, both for direct emotional impact (collision) and for the presentation of abstract ideas (metaphor)."To Eisenstein, the concept of collision was the expression in art of Marxist dialectics, the thesis to antithesis to synthesis. It also represents the subverting of objective reality and of the unwitting spectator, who is thereby raised to new levels of comprehension by the manipulations of the director. In Strike, this emphasis on collision is carried out in almost every one of its thousands of shots by such technical devices as changing the size of the image within the frame, unorthodox dissolves and iris effects (even to the combining of the two) split screen, slow and reverse motion, unexpected camera movements and angles, double exposures, the use of masks to hide or reveal portions of the image, the sudden intrusion of objects and limbs into frame, the introduction of new locales and/or characters without prior explanation."

Panzerkreuzer Potemkin by Sergei Eisenstein( Visual )

29 editions published between 1925 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 69 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.
