Time & Location
About the Event
1929 (USSR) – Directed by Dziga Vertov, 67 min
Sight and Sound Magazine recently rated MAN WITH A MOVIE CAMERA “the best documentary film of all time.”
Now see this surrealist classic in a magnificent new restoration with Alloy Orchestra's groundbreaking original score derived from the directors notes to his composer for the premiere of the film in 1929.
The credits on this restoration are an amazing collection of the best archives, collectors, and distributors in the world: Lobster Films, Blackhawk Films, The Eye, Cinémathèque de Toulouse, the Centre National de la Cinématographie and distributed by Flicker Alley
The source print was a perfect nitrate print, left by Dziga Vertov himself in Amsterdam in the 20′s. Crystal clear, minimum scratches, excellent contrast and full frame (for the first time in my lifetime). This print is so much improved from previous versions that it’s like watching the film for the first time.
