1929. USSR. Dir: Dziga Vertov. Documentary. 68 min.
Mad genius Vertov applies his “Kino-Eye” theory towards “the creation of an authentically international absolute language of cinema.” Thankfully, his magnus opus is vibrant and unpretentious, an exuberant celebration of both the medium and the surprising inspiration buried unnoticed in everyday urban life. Live accompaniment by Ben Model.
