1917 - The real october

About performance

Today, 100 years after, many artists try to rethink the meaning of the October Revolution. German director Katrin Rothe used an unexpected way to show those times – animation. Main characters of the film are writers and artists – Vladimir Mayakovski, Alexandre Benois, Zinaida Gippius, Kasimir Malevich, Maxim Gorki, and the film itself is based on previously unknown archive materials, diaries and literature.

1917 – The Real October is a cinematic retelling of the Russian Revolution. Based partially on previously unknown source material, diaries, reports, and literary works of her animated protagonists, the two-time Grimme-Award-winner Katrin Rothe undertakes a multi-perspective interrogation of what is nowadays known as “October Revolution.” A novelty: The Russian Revolution told only from the participating artists.
