On June 19th at the BFI (British Film Institute) in London there will be a screening of the classic silent film, "Battleship Potemkin", accompanied by the recorded Pet Shop Boys/Dresdner Sinfoniker score written by Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe. The soundtrack was originally performed live in Trafalgar Square in 2004; this is the first time the film and soundtrack will be presented in a cinema setting. The screening is part of this year's Meltdown Festival, curated by Yoko Ono, and will be preceded by a short discussion about the soundtrack with Philip Dodd (former director of the ICA who commissioned the soundtrack) and Neil and Chris.
