Eisenstein in Guanajuato 2015
Director Peter Greenaway - a lifelong admirer of Sergei Eisenstein - mischievously opts to depict the revolutionary Russian film-maker at the most vulnerable point in his meteoric career, in this challenging treatise on art, faith, sexual identity and mortality.

In Mexico in 1931 after a frustrating spell in Hollywood, Eisenstein (played by Finnish actor Elmer Back) is struggling to make Que Viva Mexico!, a film about the local cult of the dead. However, the 33-year-old gets a new burst of creative energy after he loses his virginity to academic-cum-guide Palomino Canedo.

Peter Greenaway's film explores the mind of a creative genius facing the desires and fears of love, sex and death through ten passionate days that helped shape the rest of the career of one of the greatest masters of Cinema.
