Peter Greenaway to Shoot Sergei Eisenstein Biopic This Year

…He hopes to shoot the Eisenstein movie, Eisenstein in Guanajuato, which is focused on the Russian director’s stay in Mexico back in 1930, in November/December of this year.

“[Guanajuato] is the name of a silver mining town, which Eisenstein visited in early 1930,” he said. “My reason for making the film is that I’m a long, long time admirer of Eisenstein. In a sense, it’s an opportunity now to pay him a certain sort of hommage.”
