Synopsis

The venerated filmmaker Eisenstein is comparable in talent, insight and wisdom. On the back of his revolutionary film "Battleship Potemkin", he was celebrated around the world, and invited to the US. Ultimately rejected by Hollywood and maliciously maligned by conservative Americans, Eisenstein traveled to Mexico in 1931 to consider a film privately funded by American pro-Communist sympathizers. Eisenstein's sensual Mexican experience appears to have been pivotal in his life and film career - a significant hinge between the early successes of "Strike", "Battleship Potemkin", and "October" and his hesitant later career with "Alexander Nevsky", "Ivan the Terrible" and "The Boyar's Plot".
