This international cinematic masterpiece portrays revolutionary events that preceded the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia. In 1905 following the Sino-Russo War, sailors of the Potemkin protest poor conditions, stirring riots on board as well as in the port city of Odessa. Tsarist militia forces and cossacks brutally defeat the sailors and their supporters, pushing calls for revolution back a decade. This film is part of Eisenstein's revolutionary triology, proceeded by Strike (1925) and October (Ten Days that Shook the World) (1928).
