This richly personal documentary uses first-person narration, artwork, film clips, and photographs to trace the life and achievements of this legendary artist and filmmaker. Rare and extensive footage from several important films, including Battleship Potemkin and Ivan the Terrible, illustrates the use of montage and subject-to-subject camera cuts-techniques developed by Eisenstein that revolutionized filmmaking. His relationships with celebrities such as Walt Disney, D. W. Griffith, Jean Cocteau, and Albert Einstein are explored within the context of Eisenstein's meteoric rise to fame from promising artist and set designer to master filmmaker.
