Classic movie ‘Battleship Potemkin’ will screen at the Nenagh Arts Centre on Thursday, March 27th.

Ostensibly a propaganda piece directed by Sergei Eisenstein, the film commemorates a pivotal moment in Russian history when in 1905 sailors aboard the battleship Potemkin protested against the Czarist regime, which was keeping them in deprived conditions.

This strike prompted local revolt in the port of Odessa and tangentially contributed to the collapse of Czarist rule in Russia.

The films screens at 8pm and admission is priced at €8 - tickets available on the door or in advance online at www.nenagharts.com.
