Kino Eye


Directed by Dziga Vertov
Soviet Union, 1924
Documentary, Silent, Avant-Garde
  • Silent
  • English


A cinematographic poem in which Dziga Vertov lays the foundation of his Kino-Eye principles, the film shows the incredible force of his theories, but also the beauty and energy of a society fresh from revolution, ready to face the challenges of a difficult future.

Our take

Cast yourself back to 1924 and the hopeful promise of two things: The USSR and the movie camera. Uniting them is the visionary Dziga Vertov, who imagined cinema as the technological embodiment of the new, modern citizen. In his hands, the camera is an idealistic tool to unite a country and a people.
