Battleship Potemkin accompanied by Live Electronic Music
On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Russian October Revolution, the Goethe-Institut commissioned the renowned Berlin electronic musician Jan Brauer to produce an alternative film score for Sergei Eisenstein’s legendary silent movie Battleship Potemkin (1925).
