Man with a Movie Camera
Man with a Movie Camera lets the viewer experience, through the filmmaker’s experience, ordinary people living their lives in a Russian city in 1929. The purpose was to make a film unhindered by language and cultural barriers, without elements of theater or set décor. It allows the spectator to form his or her own interpretation of the images on the screen. Using a series of new and modern film techniques like double exposure, slow motion, playing the film backwards and stop motion animation, the Soviet filmmaker Dziga Vertov created a classic piece of work that is a must-see for all interested in the history of film.
