Directed by Dziga Vertov
Produced in 1929
Main Language - Silent
One of the most extraordinary films in the history of cinema and as important and watchable now as when it was made. Filmed in Odessa and other cities in the late 1920s, it's an exhilarating and often hilarious montage showing people at work and play and the machines that keep the cities moving. Vertov uses a dazzling array of cinematic techniques - dissolves, double exposure, fast and slow motion, freeze frames, jump cuts, split screens, tracking shots, backwards footage - to create a witty, politicised commentary on his times and ambitions.
Length: 68 mins
Aspect ratio: 4:3
Cat No: BFIVD502
Format: DVD B&W
- 3 soundtrack options: A score which adheres closely to Vertov's notes
