Sergei Eisenstein's films Battleship Potemkin (1925) and October (1928) were acclaimed worldwide, but his experimental techniques were criticized by 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 thoughts about film, art and culture.
