Critics reviews

An ambitious attempt to encapsulate the breadth of the Soviet empire as it then was… The new electronic soundtrack by Mordant Music won’t be to all tastes (understatement) but it chimes very effectively with Vertov’s abiding urge to shake up filmic conventions – and even at the time, composers such as Aleksandr Mosolov were producing pile-drivingly ‘industrial’ scores.
