'Man With a Movie Camera' is an extraordinary piece of filmmaking, a montage of urban Russian life showing the people of the city at work and at play, and the machines that keep the city going. It was Vertov's first full-length film, and he used all the cinematic techniques at his disposal - dissolves, split screen, slow motion and freeze-frames - to produce a work that is exhilarating and intellectually brilliant. This special edition DVD features a choice of three soundtracks to accompany the film: A soundtrack composed and performed by the Alloy Orchestra, who have closely followed Vertov's notes on music to accompany the film. A new score from In the Nursery, who successfully toured the UK with the film last year. Their score deploys the latest music technology to create a soundtrack that reflects Vertov's own progressive filmmaking techniques. A commentary by Yuri Tsivian, the leading historian of Russian silent camera. His provocative and stimulating account makes this masterpiece of documentary cinema accessible as never before.
