7:30pm [7:30pm] STRIKE with the Alloy Orchestra - note TIME
Description:
Dear friends, Please come to what promises to be one of the highlights of the Labor Film series. Plan to come early to get a seat. Last year’s film with the Alloy Orchestra was nearly full house –– 400 people. STRIKE with The Alloy Orchestra in Concert Friday, October 6, 7:30 p.m. Dryden Theater, George Eastman Museum 900 East Avenue, Rochester, NY (Stachka, Sergei M. Eisenstein, Soviet Union 1925, 95 min., 35mm, Silent with intertitles) The workers of the world unite in a forceful, brilliantly constructed film of labor triumphant against brutal factory owners, government inspectors, and police spies. The official purpose of this government-sponsored project was to inform the masses, but Eisenstein believed that films should impart not merely information but sensation and impression as well. The place of story is thus taken by images of collective action and a brilliant “montage of attractions” — a cinematic perpetual motion machine, with each action or movement yielding to the next, all towards the utopian goal of worker solidarity and emancipation. The renowned Alloy Orchestra returns to the Dryden to perform the live musical accompaniment, surely another cinematic experience not to be missed. “Devastatingly poignant… After the Alloy Orchestra [trio] performed its scorching, thunderous score .. it was difficult to believe the film ever existed without it …” (Boston Herald)
