Crowning many a 'greatest films' list, Sergei Eisenstein's 1925 classic following the uprising of the crew of the titular battleship against their Tsarist officers is accompanied by Edmund Meisel's visceral, pulsating score. At this screening Ilan Volkov and the BBC SSO bring the music to life for a powerfully immersive experience. 'Part of the Merchant City Festival'.
