The Man with a Movie Camera
(Dziga Vertov, 1927)
AudA 7pm/TPL CG
Truly an "experimental"
documentary, ingenious for the era.
Vertov records life in Russia in the
late '20s, but in a complex way, using
the camera lens exactly as a human
eye (his "Kino Eye" theory). A blend
of irony, wit, and brilliance well worth
- watching. Silent.

Don Ameche and perennial Mamet
favorite Joe Mantegna. The life of a
poor but happy Sicilian shoshine man
is complicated when he's
"persuaded" to take the rap for a

written by Shel Silverstein, of
childrens poetry fame.
