Chelovek s kino-apparatom (1924) - Man with the movie camera - TSPDT #97

Experimental visual diary of a cameraman in the late twenties in Russia (Odessa?)

The editing is extremely fascinating and loads of the camerawork still feels modern
and "up-to-date". One can easily assume that this film must have had an
enormous impact on future visual techniques.

Interesting is the "in and out" from observing the cameraman at work and seeing the world with his eyes. The music which was provided with this copy was pretty good and put the pace even higher.

Something I haven't seen lately, but I really like it was the difference in scales that he used sometimes
in the half-masked shots. Would be nice to see something like that again.
