Presented by The Mac and Belfast Film Festival, we are delighted to welcome Guy Bartell who will provide a live soundtrack to this silent movie.

Set during the closing stages of the Eastern Front of the First World War, Arsenal documents a Bolshevik uprising in Ukraine that was a pivotal moment in the Ukrainian War of Independence, and the country’s war with Soviet Russia. 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the uprising.

Bronnt Industries Kapital is based around British composer Guy Bartell, who works in the fields of film soundtrack, electronic music and sound art. He has recorded soundtracks for British Film Institute amongst others, including contemporary scores for the cult Swedish silent film Häxan and the Soviet propaganda film Turksib.
