Man with a movie camera
Mon 23 November 2015,

A man travels around a city with a camera slung over his shoulder, documenting urban life with dazzling invention. Dziga Vertov’s Man with a Movie Camera is a film about film production – from the cameraman and the editor to the projectionist and the orchestra involved with the exhibition of the film we see being made. It’s a documentary of a day in the life of the Soviet Union. It’s also, critically, about cities and urban life in a period of swift change as seen in 1929. Regarded as one of the greatest films of all time and perhaps the best documentary film ever made, it’s presented here in a new print with live accompaniment by the HarmonieBand and a new score composed by Paul Robinson.
