Eisenstein’s first film, Strike, made in 1924 was another propaganda piece, this time concerning the oppression of factory workers in 1912.

Potemkin was structured into five acts: Men and Maggots, Drama on the Quarterdeck, An Appeal from the Dead, The Odessa Steps and Meeting the Squadron.

The film was shot in ten weeks, and edited in a fortnight to a tight deadline: apparently the final reel was delivered to the cinema during the first performance
