Man with a movie camera
Documentary, by Dziga Vertov, Russia, 1929.
After a few years spent making propaganda documentaries, Dziga Vertov realizes his masterpiece, inspired by the theories on reality cinema and Kinoglaz. An experimental visual symphony with futurist roots. An ordinary day of a cinematographer wandering around the city without apparent purpose in search of the life to be filmed. The camera triggers an explosion of creativity that is a new vision of reality: pure cinema that is enhanced with ingenious editing inventions. A film so inspired and modern that it is still an endless subject of discussion and new ideas today.
Food for thought
Certain works of art, certain films have an objective art quality. In subjective art, the artist does not consider who is looking at the work of art, he merely brings out his own inner world. The objective work of art, on the other hand, has an inherent quality that can be passed on for thousands of years. The objective work of art is not linked to any ideology, social culture or era: it can excite anyone, at any latitude and in any era.
