The Potemkinists
Radu Jude
Romania 2022
18 min

Another of Radu Jude’s fascinating impromptu history lessons. This time, the tireless director mixes fiction and video essay to look at the story behind the Russian battleship Potemkin, famous also for its depiction in Eisenstein’s film, and how the revolutionary mutineers sought asylum in Constanţa. The protagonists, a sculptor who wants to build a monument to the sailors and a doubtful official from the Ministry of Culture, discuss and thus reveal the conglomerate of our times: confusion, absurdity, idealism and a lost sense for what is right and what is wrong. (Patrick Holzapfel)
