As part of our classic movie discussion nights, we are pleased to invite you to attend the discussion/screening of the 1929 Documentary “Chelovek s kino-apparatom” or “Man with a movie camera” a silent Russian experimental Documentary of A man who travels around a city with a camera slung over his shoulder, documenting urban life with dazzling invention.
Man with a movie camera 1929
PG-13, 1hr 8min, (Documentary, Experimental), Soviet Union | Ukraine
Silent, with Musical Soundtrack
This playful film is at once a documentary of a day in the life of the Soviet Union, a documentary of the filming of said documentary, and a depiction of an audience watching the film. Even the editing of the film is documented. We often see the cameraman who is purportedly making the film, but we rarely, if ever, see any of the footage he seems to be in the act of shooting.
