Kino-Eye: The Writings of Dziga Vertov

Dziga Vertov was one of the greatest innovators of Soviet cinema. The radical complexity of his workin both sound and silent formshas given it a central place within contemporary theoretical inquiry. Vertov’s writings, collected here, range from calculated manifestos setting forth his heroic vision of film’s potential to dark ruminations on the inactivity forced upon him by the bureaucratization of the Soviet state.
