Peter Greenaway’s EISENSTEIN IN GUANAJUATO at Fringe! Queer Film & Arts Fest
EISENSTEIN IN GUANAJUATO (2015)
Rio Cinema, Tuesday 24 November, 8:30pm
This startling, joyful whirlwind of a film takes us on a completely over-the-top journey of Russian auteur filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein’s trip to Mexico in 1931. Camp, raunchy, provocative and political, this film will startle your senses at every turn, from the lavish cinematography and set design to the creative visual explosion that Eisenstein navigates exploring his awakening desires against the dizzying backrop of Día de Muertos. The man’s genius and eccentricity are brought forth beautifully by Elmer Bäck’s vitality, and you cannot help but be swept up in the energy and passion of this remarkable biopic.
