“MAN WITH A MOVIE CAMERA
Directed by Dziga Vertov / USSR, 1929 / 68  Mins
With live musical accompaniment from Giles Leaman on  percussion and various other instruments, and the string trio ‘Barrel’: Alison  Blunt, Hannah Marshall and Ivor Kallin.
The  recent popularity of the film The Artist  has shown how enjoyable it can be  to watch a film with music and no dialogue. HIC decided to take things a stage  further by screening this 1929 Russian classic to the accompaniment of live  improvised music. Man with a Movie Camera is a real piece of  cinema history, one of the most radical and unique films to come out of the  early experimental phase of Soviet cinema. Vertov was a pioneer member of the  revolutionary avant garde; he felt film was locked into the tradition of stage  plays and it was time to discover a new, specifically cinematic, style. Films  could move with the speed of our minds as we free-associate or the speed of a  musical composition, they did not need any dialogue. Indeed, at the opening of  the film Vertov pointed out that it had no scenario, intertitles or characters.  It was a series of images, and his notes specified a fast-moving musical score. 

Set over 24 hours in the life of a city, it is famous for the range of  cinematic techniques Vertov invents, deploys or develops, such as double  exposure, fast and slow motion, freeze frames, jump cuts, split screens, Dutch  angles, extreme close-ups, tracking shots, footage played backwards, and stop  motion animations. There are no characters, only the un-named cameraman and  editor. Man with a Movie Camera is not a conventional  film in any sense of the word. It is a hymn of praise to the life of the city  and the transformative power of  film.” From HIC web site.

“The Benefits of Meditation” as demonstrated by Mary Fahey

Before the raffle and after the tea and Club biscuits; after the jokes from Daniel and his match-stick trick with his accomplice, I mean, lovely assistant, Jeanette;  after the to-do about believing in a god and reminiscing about The Holy Land trip and after Sara arrived in her red sequined beret then along came Mary Fahey and sent us into states of deep relaxation. Eric fell asleep.

Our Mary is professional and wise. She introduced herself and we were off, breathing and sighing, sitting still and peaceful concentrating on pink energy balls and inward breaths . Everyone experienced the goodness.
