“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.
