Google dedicated its doodle on Monday to celebrate the 120th birth anniversary of Russian filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein.

Monday marks the 120th birth anniversary of Soviet film director and film theorist Sergei Eisenstein and Google dedicated its doodle to the filmmaker.

Born in 1898, Sergei (Sergei Mikhailovich Eisenstein) was a pioneer in the theory and practice of montage in film making- the technique of editing a fast-paced sequence of short shots to transcend time or suggest thematic juxtapositions.

The doodle shows Sergei developing the film reels.

He directed several groundbreaking films, including Battleship Potemkin, Strike, and The General Line.



Google took to its website to describe, “His films were also revolutionary in another sense, as he often depicted the struggle of downtrodden workers against the ruling class.”

He was honoured with Stalin prize in 1941 and 1946.

Sergei took his last breath on February 11, 1948 at the age of 50 in Moscow, Soviet Union.
