The Man With A Movie Camera

Together with his wife Elizaveta Svilova he created the experimental silent documentary film The Man with a Movie Camera out of the many bits.

  1. Ich kenne D. Vertov, hat auch eines der wichtigsten Bücher über den Dokumentarfilm geschrieben, war der Begründer der berühmten Filmschule in Riga (später Herz Frank, den du ja kennst). Sind tolle Bespiele, die du da gefunden hast!!!
