Vlada Petric explicates the cinematic text of one of the most famous works of avant-garde nonfiction film, Dziga Vertov's Man with a Movie Camera
Reviews & endorsements
'The publication of Vlada Petric's Constructivism in Film … is a long-awaited and important moment in film criticism … after decades in which Vertov's concepts of cinema have been insufficiently researched and often misrepresented, English-speaking readers and lovers of film as an art form have two important opportunities: (1) to obtain information directly from the source and (2) to understand Vertov's expansive achievement and its theoretical basis. At last there is much to read, seriously consider, and appreciate.' Journal of Film and VideoSee more reviews
'In this remarkable book, Vlada Petric explicates the cinematic text of one of the most famous works of avant-garde nonfiction film, Dziga Vertov's Man with a Movie Camera … it is difficult to imagine a better or more complete formal analysis of a single movie, or a book that teaches us more about the 'cinematic way of seeing', than Constructivism in Film'. The Russian Review
