Strike! w/ live accompaniment by The Alloy Orchestra

Willard Straight Theatre
Central Campus

w/ live accompaniment by The Alloy Orchestra

1925 > USSR > Directed by Sergei Eisenstein
Russian master Sergei Eisenstein's feature debut is a gripping account of a 1912 factory workers' strike and its violent suppression. "The Alloy Orchestra helps create a feel of palpable menace as factory workers' ire against the fatcat factory owners builds to the breaking point. . . .By the time the final clash of cymbals concludes a devastating finale, the mix of Eisenstein and the Alloy has produced a spellbinding collaboration." (New York Post) Cosponsored with the Dept of Music, ILR and the Cornell Council for the Arts. Advance tickets available at
