Man With A Movie Camera (1929)
Wednesday, November 2 @ 9:15 p.m.
Tickets $9:

A revelation in its day and a must-see for any cinephile, Dziga Vertog's Man With A Movie Camera was noted for introducing all sorts of camera techniques to audiences, such as double exposure, fast motion, slow motion, freeze frames, jump cuts, split screens, Dutch angles, extreme close-ups, tracking shots, footage played backwards, and stop motion animations.

This playful film is at once a documentary of a day in the life of the Soviet Union, a documentary of the filming of said documentary, and a depiction of an audience watching the film. Even the editing of the film is documented. We often see the cameraman who is purportedly making the film, but we rarely, if ever, see any of the footage he seems to be in the act of shooting!
