1925 - Battleship Potemkin

Our first debate year, 1925 saw a fierce competition between two contenders, with Battleship Potemkin’s sheer prestige and critical praise winning out over The Lost World’s revolutionary stop motion and fantastical concept. Director Sergei Eisenstein demonstrates the capabilities of his theories of montage editing in this Soviet propaganda film, considered by many to be one of the most important ever made. Topics of conversation include the Kuleshov effect, movie violence, and the important distinction between worms and maggots. Also fly acting. Watch the film here.
