||Documentary film: "October: Ten Days that Shook the World"
On the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution, this classic Soviet film by Sergei Eisenstein (1927, 102 minutes) relives the epic events surrounding the Bolshevik capture of state power in Russia on November 7, 1917. Named after American journalist John Reed's popular book and eyewitness account "Ten Days that Shook the World." The formation of the world's first socialist state, despite its flaws, is arguably the single most earthshaking event of the twentieth century.
A brief discussion will follow the film screening. A more extensive discussion of the significance and legacy of the Russian Revolution will take place in Part 2 of this series on the following Tuesday.
Open to the public
Sponsored by the San Jose Peace and Justice Center, Ambedkar King Study Circle, Rise Up for Justice, and the Peace & Freedom Party of Santa Clara County
