Synopsis

How the miners of the Don coal basin (one of the industrial regions of Ukraine) were striving to fulfill in four years their part of the Five Year Plan.

Our take

Dziga Vertov’s first sound film is a staple of avant-garde cinema, pioneering audio design by turning mechanical noise into a thrilling symphony. Dedicated to Stalin’s Five-Year Plan, Enthusiasm glorified Soviet industrialization, but its lasting effect was the liberation of sound from image.
