Sergei Eisenstein

Today on Google's home page globally is a special Google logo, aka a Doodle, for the father of the montage, Sergei Eisenstein. It would be his 120th birthday today, his full name was Sergei Mikhailovich Eisenstein.

He was born in Russia in 1898 and passed at the young age of 50 on February 11, 1948 from a heart attack. His most notable works include Strike (1924), Battleship Potemkin (1925), October: Ten Days That Shook the World (1927), Alexander Nevsky (1938), and Ivan the Terrible (1944).

Google wrote on their Doodle page:

Known as the father of montage - the film technique of editing a fast-paced sequence of short shots to transcend time or suggest thematic juxtapositions - Eisenstein deployed arresting images in sequences of psychological precision. His films were also revolutionary in another sense, as he often depicted the struggle of downtrodden workers against the ruling class.

Sergei received two Stalin Prizes over his years. And now he gets his very own Google Doodle.

You can learn more about his life at Wikipedia.
