The Man with a Movie Camera

Directed by Dziga Vertov

“Considered one of the most innovative and influential films of the silent era” (Kino Lorber), Dziga Vertov’s documentary was formed from the idea to film life as it is. A series of rapidly-edited images with no dialogue shows the life of a city from sunrise to sunset, focusing on its buildings and machinery as it explores post-Soviet revolution industrialization. 1929, 16mm transferred to video, 68 minutes.

Note: On June 5, the screening ends at 4:30 pm due to a special event.
