120th birthday of Sergei Eisenstein

Today is the 120th birthday of Sergei Eisenstein known as the father of montage technique in filmmaking.
Google celebrated the 120th birth anniversary of this great filmmaker with a doodle. 
Montage is a technique in editing in which a series of short shots are edited into a sequence to condense space, time, and information. Eisenstein’s films had political themes and Google Doodle in its website added that “his films were also revolutionary in another sense, as he often depicted the struggle of downtrodden workers against the ruling class”.
