The first photos from the set of Peter Greenaway's new film "Eisenstein in Guanajuato" have surfaced. The film, which follows Russian iconoclast Sergei Eisenstein's ten days spent in the titular city, is currently filming in Mexico. Eisenstein's sensual experiences in Guanajuato in 1931 greatly influenced his life and his films. Check out the photos below.

Though the British filmmaker behind such startlingly radical films as "The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover" (1989) and "The Pillow Book"(1996) has mostly been working on experimental art projects, Peter Greenaway has put out a couple of features in recent years, including "Goltzius and the Pelican Company" (2012) with F. Murray Abraham.

The "Eisenstein" cast includes Finnish actor Elmer Back in the title role, Mexican actor Luis Alberti in the role of his guide (Palomino Canedo), South African actor Stelio Savante as Hunter S. Kimbrough and Lisa Owen as Mary Craig Sinclair. 

A master visual stylist whose films are a brainy meld of art history, theater and pure cinema, Greenaway is always a director to watch. The new film is expected to be released in cinemas in September 2014.
