The Strike

In a Russian factory region during Czarist rule, there is restlessness and strike planning among workers; management brings in spies and external agents.
Russian auteur Sergei Eisenstein's first full-length feature, set just before the 1905 Bolshevik Revolution, depicts a workers' strike against their oppressive factory bosses. When a worker is accused of stealing a piece of machinery, he commits suicide, and his fellow employees revolt against the Czarist regime controlling the factory. As the strike drags on and government officials grow more desperate to end it, their methods of dealing with the rebellious workers become grislier. In Strike, Eisenstein gave full vent to his unbridled imagination and applied completely new principles and technologies of cinema. It’s also the film that launched the famous tandem of director, Eisenstein and cameraman, Eduard Tisse. Together they would go on to make other great films like Battleship Potemkin, October, and Alexander Nevsky.
