Dziga Vertov | ’29 | USSR | 65m
“Dziga Vertov”
*Introduced by Ken Jacobs

6:30 at MOMA

“[Dziga Vertov’s 1929 Russian film amounts to a catalog of all the tricks the movies can perform. As a newsreel cameraman travels through a city (actually an amalgam of Moscow and Odessa), Vertov transforms the images captured by his camera through a kaleidoscope of slow motion, superimposition, animation, and wild montage effects. The film remains a fascinating souvenir, though its flourishes are now fairly familiar.”
