Screenwriter: Peter Greenaway
EISENSTEIN IN GUANAJUATO - which premiered to widespread acclaim at the Berlin International Film Festival - kicks dust in the face of the rickety biopic, injecting all things rich, wild and deliciously taboo. Revered filmmaker Peter Greenaway (THE COOK, THE THIEF, HIS WIFE & HER LOVER) brings out the best of his acclaimed and controversial filmmaking style in this bold and sexually explicit celebration of Sergei Eisenstein's gay coming-of-age during what is now considered his transformative trip to Mexico during the 1930s. Temporarily free of Soviet constraints, the famed Russian director (played by Elmer Bäck) discovers his wild side upon meeting and bedding a gorgeous tour guide named Palomino (Luis Alberti, CARMIN TROPICAL). What starts as a work-related trip becomes a dizzying journey into the mind of a visionary who, at the peak of his artistic power, discovers romance for the first time. The result is a wild experiment in abstract storytelling that overflows with joy and energy. Greenaway captures Eisenstein's essence and makes his enthusiasm for art and sex our own.
