    Voted one of the ten best films ever made in the Sight & Sound 2012 poll, and the best documentary ever in a subsequent poll in 2014, Man With A Movie Camera (Chelovek s kinoapparatom) stands as one of cinema’s most essential documents - a dazzling exploration of the possibilities of image-making as related to the everyday world around us.

    The culmination of a decade of experiments to render “the chaos of visual phenomena filling the universe”, Dziga Vertov’s masterwork uses a staggering array of cinematic devices to capture the city at work and at play, as well as the machines that power it.

    Presented in a definitive new restoration from EYE Film Institute in Amsterdam and Lobster Films, the film is also presented with other works by Vertov, both before and after his masterpiece - Kino-Eye (1924), Kino-Pravda #21 (1925), Enthusiasm: Symphony of the Donbass (1931) and Three Songs About Lenin (1934) - in this limited-edition 4-Disc Dual-Format edition.

    Special Features:
    • Limited-edition 4-Disc Dual-Format
    • New high-definition restored transfers of all five films
    • Uncompressed PCM audio on all films
    • Scores by The Alloy Orchestra for Man With A Movie Camera and Robert Israel for Kino-Eye
    • New audio commentary on Man With A Movie Camera by film scholar Adrian Martin
    • The Life and Times of Dziga Vertov, an exclusive, lengthy video interview with film scholar Ian Christie on Vertov’s career and the films in this set
    • 100-page limited edition book featuring the words of Dziga Vertov, archival imagery and more!
