British group Bronnt Industries Kapital perform a new live soundtrack to Olexandr Dovzhenko’s classic silent film Arsenal to mark the 100 year anniversary of the uprising depicted in the film and to coincide with the album release of the soundtrack.
Set during the closing stages of the Eastern Front of the First World War, Arsenal documents a Bolshevik uprising in Ukraine that was a pivotal moment in the Ukrainian War of Independence, and the country’s war with Soviet Russia. January 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the uprising.
The soundtrack was commissioned by the Oleksandr Dovzhenko National Centre in Kyiv, Ukraine to accompany the recently restored print, and supported by the British Council.
“A terrifically intense soundtrack” Sight & Sound, UK
“Bartell’s score is expertly judged – an echo chamber of horror for the film to resonate inside. I urge you to catch the film with this score whenever you can.” Pamela Hutchinson, The Guardian | Silent London, UK
