This landmark of the Soviet avant-garde and the silent era of film is a dazzling “City Symphony” in the manner of certain other non-fiction films of the time. Dziga Vertov’s masterpiece offers a “kino-eye” documentary portrait of a day in the life of a large Soviet city.

MUBI's take

Dziga Vertov’s masterpiece remains a visually thrilling chronicle of modern life, and an ode to the power of film. A lucid mixture of documentary and avant-garde techniques, it’s a radical redefinition of cinema’s boundaries—essential viewing that is just as groundbreaking many years later.
