Kino-eye : the writings of Dziga Vertov by Dziga Vertov( Book )

20 editions published between 1983 and 2001 in English and Russian and held by 594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dziga Vertov was one of the greatest innovators of Soviet cinema. The radical complexity of his work, in both sound and silent forms, has given it a central place within contemporary theoretical inquiry. Vertov's writings, collected here, range from calculated manifestos setting forth his heroic vision of film's potential to dark ruminations on the inactivity forced upon him by the bureaucratization of the Soviet state
Kino-eye. Three songs about Lenin by Dziga Vertov( Visual )

44 editions published between 1924 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dziga Vertov, whose renegade approach to cinema is best remembered in the legendary "Man With the Movie Camera" and his series of Kino-Pravda newsreels, demonstrates his mastery of montage in this 1924 feature previously unseen in the United States. "Kino-Eye" (1924, 74 min.) is a fascinating film, not just for its aesthetic beauty and political significance, but for honestly documenting a society fresh from revolution, buoyed by idealism, ready to face the challenges of a difficult future. Also included is "Three Songs of Lenin" (1934, 62 min.), Vertov's most personal work and the capstone of his career. The film reveals the Soviet leader as seen through the eyes of the people, represented by three songs. The exhilarating beauty of Vertov's images and the majesty of his filmmaking skills produced a film that The New York Times called "a work of unusual beauty and emotional exaltation."

Dziga Vertov's first sound film, a documentary on the coal miners of the Don Basin, is notable for its experiemental use of sound montages, organized by Vertov with an attention equal to his complex segmented visuals, so that each element possesses both autonomy and a contrapuntal, denotational relation to the other

Stride, Soviet!( Visual )

6 editions published in 1926 in Russian and English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the 1920s, Soviet documentary and fiction films were financed by the State, and their fledgling directors, some barely out of their teens, converted their lives from theater, engineering, painting and journalism to the practice and theory of a revolutionary cinema devoted to showing the achievements and aspirations of the new Socialist society. Their problem was to captivate an enormous, culturally diverse, multi-lingual, semi-literate population in ways that would be emotionally compelling, yet ideologically clear. The proven ability of movies to achieve this difficult goal inspired Lenin's famous dictum, 'For us, cinema is the most important art, ' and their stunning innovations recharged world cinema. Editing, or montage, is the common organizational basis of these films and each of the filmmakers believed the arrangement of shots to be the foundation of film art. Dziga Vertov's Stride, Soviet! (1926), a documentary which transformed a State commission intending to show what the Soviet had done for Moscow into a highly experimental film about the state of Soviet society and contemporary life. The film has many scenes portraying machines, factory workers, automobiles, and poverty
