Directed by Cannes & Venice film festival favorite, Peter Greenaway's Eisenstein cast includes Finnish actor Elmer Back in the title role, Mexican actor Luis Alberti in the role of his guide (Palomino Cañedo), South African actor Stelio Savante as Hunter S. Kimbrough and Lisa Owen as Mary Craig Sinclair. Scroll down for a first look at the film!

The film follows Eisenstein's ten days spent in Guanajuato, Mexico, in 1931. His sensual experiences in Guanajuato (including an affair with his guide and minder Palomino Canedo) greatly influenced his life and his films.

Greenaway (whose casts have included Helen Mirren, Ralph Fiennes, Ewan McGregor, Toni Collette and F. Murray Abraham) said: "At a time when cinema is dying, it is pertinent to celebrate cinema's greatest practitioner. The business of cinema never seems to change. Many of the problems Eisenstein had in 1931, have reappeared all over again. Difficulties of financing, problems of logistics, cultures and language barriers. Such as Eisenstein rose to these problems, so do we."

"Eisenstein in Guanajuato" is an international co-production between Submarine and Fu Works (The Netherlands), and Paloma Negra Films (Mexico), Edith Film (Finland) and Potemkino (Belgium). Broadcasting networks VPRO (the Netherlands), ZDF (Germany), Arte (France) and YLE (Finland) are supporting the film. The pic is produced by Bruno Felix and Femke Wolting for Submarine ("Meet the Fokkens," "Rembrandt's J'Accuse"), and San Fu Maltha for Fu Works ("Blackbook," "Winter in Wartime,"). The film will be shot entirely in Guanajuato, Mexico.
