Sat 23 Jan - THE TRUTH IS SIMPLE: Vertov, film and social experiment in the 1920s

John Leman Riley joins Jude Cowan Montague to discuss the work of Dziga Vertov and Bolshevik newsfilm during the Russian civil war. Vertov acted on his own manifestos of a new culture where human and machine acted together in a new synthesis to blast away Romanov tradition. The Kino-Glaz would record the present to create the future. Did the films that he created with Elizaveta Svilova (his wife) and Boris Kaufman (his brother) represent reality or were they a new theatrical illusion?
