      Man with a Movie Camera, Musical score composed by Jack Waldenmaier, live performance by Voices of Change. Want to make your way through this list of The Top 50 Greatest Films of All Time?  Come knock #8 off -   Man With a Movie Camera - on screen in the Horchow auditorium. 

      Man with a Movie Camera  Человек с киноаппаратом, is an experimental 1929 silent documentary film, with no story and no actors by Russian director Dziga Vertov, edited by his wife Elizaveta Svilova.

      Vertov's feature film, produced by the Ukrainian film studio VUFKU, presents urban life in Odessa and other Soviet cities. From dawn to dusk Soviet citizens are shown at work and at play, and interacting with the machinery of modern life. To the extent that it can be said to have "characters," they are the cameramen of the title, the film editor, and the modern Soviet Union they discover and present in the film.

       

      Man with a Movie Camera, depicting 24 hours in the life of a Russian city, was actually filmed over a period of about 3 years. Three Russian cities — Moscow, Kiev and Odessa — were the shooting locations.

      This film is famous for the range of cinematic techniques Vertov invents, deploys or develops, such as double exposure, fast motion, slow motion, freeze frames, jump cuts, split screens, Dutch angles, extreme close-ups, tracking shots, footage played backwards, stop motion animations and a self-reflexive style (at one point it features a split screen tracking shot; the sides have opposite Dutch angles). In 2012 Sight and Sound's poll, the film has been selected #8 best film ever made by critics.
