“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 the score whenever you can.” Pamela Hutchinson, The Guardian/Silent London.

Bronnt Industries Kapital perform a live score to accompany a new print of the 1929 silent film by Oleksandr Dovzhenko.

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 countries war with Soviet Russia. Arsenal is a powerful anti-war statement, and has provoked comparisons with Picasso’s Guernica for its compassionate, complex depiction of war. January 2018 marks the 100th Anniversary of the uprising.

Bronnt Industries Kapital
is based around British composer Guy Bartell, who works in the fields of film sountrack, electronic music and sound art. This soundtrack was newly commissioned by the Oleksandr Dovzhenko National Centre in Kyiv, Ukraine.  

Tickets: £12, £10 concessions/members
