A cameraman travels around a city with a camera slung over his shoulder, documenting urban life in the Soviet Union with dazzling inventiveness. Vertov's exhilarating exploration of the relationships between cinema, actuality and history opened up all the issues Godard, the avant-gardes, and political filmmakers have been wrestling with ever since. A truly radical and liberating work.
