Soviet director Dziga Vertov's experimental film grew out of his belief, shared by his editor, Elizaveta Svilova and his cinematographer Mikhail Kaufman, that the true goal of cinema should be to present life as it is lived. To that end, the filmmakers offer a day-in-the-life portrait of a city from dawn until dusk, though they actually shot their footage in several cities, including Moscow, Kiev, and Odessa. After an opening statement, there are no words in the film, just dazzling imagery.
