Sergei Eisenstein's first full-length feature film. Unrest starts at a factory. The last straw was the suicide of a worker accused of stealing a micrometer. An inevitable fine and a many-month payment of the debt for the lost instrument would have ended in his death from hunger anyway. The dead man's comrades go on strike. The resentful crowd's actions are directed by the strike committee. They make a decision not to work until the strikers' demands are met: raising wages, improving labor conditions. The working-class settlement is threatened with hunger. The strike committee calls for patience and fortitude. To provoke the crisis, the management uses local hooligans. Brought to the point of despair, the crowd goes out in the street, where they're confronted with the Cossacks. Awards Silver Medal at the Paris Fair
