Plot synopsis
The film is dedicated to the centenary of filmmaking and the centenary of Sergei Eisenstein and is based on Eisenstein's memoirs. The plot of the film is a long voyage abroad, which Eisenstein started in 1929. We see transformed episodes from films of Eisenstein and his contemporaries, as well as rare archival shots of Eisenstein himself. We hear only Eisenstein's reminiscences, which are sometimes very personal. All this reflects the inner world of the great film director during the tragic years of two Russian revolutions and the Stalin terror. Events and personalities shown in the film underline the special place of Sergei Eisenstein in the culture of the 20th century.
