The BFI Southbank cinema complex is a godsend to all movie lovers around the world.
After arriving to the UK just days past, one of the first things I thought about was making sure I made it my mission to go to as many events and screenings as possible at this fantastic venue for all things films.
This month they are focusing on KINO Cinema, or in other words, The Russian history of filmmaking.
Starting of was a screening of the fantastic Eisenhover movie "Battleship Potemkin", a subliminal masterpiece and one of the most influentel flicks ever put-togheter. Defining the art of the montage and using music to create both mood and rytm.
The film still holds up as well today as it did decades ago and its historical significance can`t be overstated.
I would encourage anybody who has any kind of interest for the cinema to visit the BFI this month.
