Eisenstein is the irreverent story of a man whose genius was too great to be controlled by any tyrant, even Stalin. The rise, fall and fatal redemption of Russian revolutionary filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein is an epic and moving story of wry humor and visionary images. Eisenstein goes beyond biography to become a modern fable about the struggle between Art and Power. Shot entirely on original locations in Russia, the Ukraine and Mexico, Eisenstein is a visual treat.
