Vertov employed all the cinematic techniques then at his disposal to produce a seminal first full-length feature that is both exhilarating and intellectually brilliant. Without inter-titles, story, scenario, sets or actors, this is an extraordinary and revolutionary piece of filmmaking. Rhythm ace The Birdman provides a unique live score in collaboration with special guest Matthew Bourne.
