    1922/1923/post-1930. USSR. Edited by Elizaveta Svilova. A compilation of outtakes and excerpts from films in which Vertov appears. Kino-Pravda issues 8 and 17 are among the sources. Approx. 1 min.

  • Vertov Interviews

    Post-1935. USSR. A compilation of documentary shots featuring Vertov, possibly edited by Elizaveta Svilova, including an interview that was probably conducted at the 1935 Moscow Film Festival. Approx. 1 min.

  • Kinonedelja (Kino-Week) nos. 1, 3, 4, 5, 21–25

    1918. Russia. Directed by Dziga Vertov. The 43 issues of Kino-Week that were made between May 1918 and June 1919 (some of them directed and supervised by Vertov) are a priceless record of daily life during the civil war between the White and Red Armies, and at the brutal conclusion of the Great War between Russia and its former allies—violent upheaval that brought about famine, peasant mutinies, and the Soviet Government’s “Red Terror” policy. Included in this program from 1918 are images of Lenin and Trotsky reviewing the Red Army parade in Red Square; the wildly triumphant “Anniversary Chariot” circling the streets of Moscow in commemoration of the centenary of Karl Marx’s birth; scenic views of the White Nights in Moscow; and the unveilings of statues dedicated to such revolutionary heroes as Danton and Bakunin, commissioned as part of Lenin’s Plan for Monumental Propaganda. Silent. Approx. 72 min.
