Young Sergei returns home

Everyone knows Sergei Eisenstein as one of the world’s greatest filmmakers of all times but very few outside his native country, know that he was actually from Latvia, born in Riga where he spent the first 17 years of his life. Celebrating the 110th birthday of that sacred monster of cinema history and marking twenty years since its foundation, the Riga Film Museum organizes a grand exhibition titled Riga boy Sergei Eisenstein. The exhibition, which focuses on Eisenstein’s childhood and adolescence in Riga, opens July 27 and runs through the end of the year.
