Man with a Movie Camera
Relentlessly impactful in its sheer force of groundbreaking ideas, the Soviet-era Man with a Movie Camera is a landmark of documentary and one of the greatest films ever made. A collection of images as collected by a roving cameraman, It was edited by Yelizaveta Svilova, who in the mode of ascribing single authorship, would often go uncredited. Yet Svilova helped pioneer montage, the syntax of film language, and was a fulsome co-creator together with husband Dziga Vertov. Svilova’s incredible work can be seen literally here; for there she is on screen, hard at work at her editing table.
