Sergei Eisenstein's films, Battleship Potemkin (1925) and October (1928) were acclaimed worldwide, but his experimental techniques came in for criticism from Soviet authorities and his output was severely curtailed by political difficulties. This translation of his autobiography, written two years before his death in 1948, recounts his life in the Soviet Union and his travels in the West, and includes his wide-ranging thoughts about film, art and culture, some of his idiosyncratic sketches, and photographs from his life and career.
