West Coast Premiere!
Directed by Dziga Vertov
The Archive is please to present the West Coast premiere of the EYE Film Institute Netherland’s definitive new restoration of Man with a Movie Camera, which preserves the original full-frame image of cameraman Mikhail Kaufman’s dazzling Constructivist compositions. A breathtaking and witty vision of cosmopolitan life in Moscow and Odessa, Man with a Movie Camera remains among the most radical, and imitated, films in cinema history.
Screenwriter: Dziga Vertov. Cinematographer: Mikhail Kaufman.
35mm, b/w, silent w/ Russian intertitles and English subtitles, 67 min.
