Man With A Movie Camera (1929)
Two versions of Dziga Vertoz's 1929 classic: first the original silent version, accompanied by a new musical score composed and performed by the Alloy Orchestra, then a repeat of the original with a commentary by the Russian film historian Yuri Tsivian. The film is a montage of Moscow life, showing the people of the city at work and at play, and the machines that keep the city moving. The filmmaker used all the cinematic techniques at his disposal, including dissolves, split screen, slow motion and freeze frames. Released by arrangement with George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film.
