Steps

A TV crew is getting ready for the remaking of the celebrated Odessa Steps sequence from Eisenstein’s ?Battleship Potemkin?. Combing geometrical choreography with a series of mesmerizing optical illusions, Rybczyński’s ?Steps? can be read on many levels: as a playful cinematic tribute, as a film about the development of technology and an aesthetical and political statement on contemporary society.
