'Man With a Movie Camera' is an extraordinary piece of filmmaking, a montage of urban Russian life showing the people of the city at work and at play, and the machines that keep the city going. It was Vertov's first full-length film, and he used all the cinematic techniques at his disposal - dissolves, split screen, slow motion and freeze-frames - to produce a work that is exhilarating and intellectually brillant.

This special edition DVD features a choice of three soundtacks to accompany the film:

A soundtrack composed and performed by the Alloy Orchestra, who have closely followed Vertov's notes on music to accompany the film.

A new score from In the Nursey, who successfully toured the UK with the film last year. Their score deploys the latest music technology to create a soundtrack that reflects Vertov's own progressive filmmaking techniques.

A commentary by Yuri Tsivian, the leading historian of Russian silent camera. His provocative and stimulating account makes this masterpiece of documentary cinema accessible as never before.
  • Two Musical Scores: The Alloy Orchestra Playing The Original Score And A New Score By Electronic Duo In The Nursery
  • Commentary By Russian Cinema Expert Yuri Tsivian

 This is Avant-Garde filmmaking.

Dziga Vertov's 68 minute visual poem of Soviet life and the world of the machine is quite possibly the most beautiful thing to ever grace the screen.
'Man with a Movie Camera' is a 1929 Soviet Montage Avant-Garde Documentary in which Vertov literally filmed whatever he saw.
It's an incredible eye-sore into the realms of filmmaking, technology and financial courage of such a critically important time in cinema.
It's a surreal experience watching this film, but one you will never forget.
This is Vertov's first feature-length film, and by far his best.
One of cinema's biggest achievements.
