Masters of Cinema’s stunning new Dziga Vertov set, photographed on the rich brown leather background of my couch. If you rush out and buy this, you get not only MAN WITH A MOVIE CAMERA, but all of Vertov’s other major works, providing not only valuable context, but a bunch of brilliant films some of which it might even be possible to prefer to the more celebrated title.

You also get a video essay written and sort-of-directed by me (Vertov deserves credit for all the shooting!) and edited by Timo Langer, entitled NON-FICTION FILM THING (Vertov’s subtitle description for his KINO EYE newsreel/essay works).

I urge you to acquire!

Property is theft: it makes you feel clever.

Use the link below when purchasing in order to benefit Shadowplay by a few sticky pennies:
