Russian Video: A Man with a Movie Camera!


How we’ve recently promised you this weekend we will watch an old Russian full-length documentary video. A Man with a Movie Camera (Человек с киноаппаратом) was made as an experimental 1929 silent documentary film by Russian director Dziga Vertov, editor Elizaveta Svilova (who was also his wife), and his cinematographer, Mikhail Kaufman (also his brother). The idea behind this movie was to show life it is lived. This movie became a portrait of one day in big Soviet city. Really, there were three cities: Moscow, Kiev and Odessa.

The music what was used in this movie was composed from notes left by the director.
