  • NYMan with a Movie Camera

    2010. Great Britain. Directed by Michael Nyman. Nyman presents the New York premiere of his shot-for-shot riff on Vertov’s city symphony Man with a Movie Camera. Inspired by Vertov and Elizabeta Svilova’s experiments in rhythmic editing, and by his own experience in composing electrifying original scores for Vertov’s silent films, Nyman has created a deeply personal, wildly eclectic voyage around the world in 65 minutes, drawing on footage shot over the past two decades in a dozen countries including Iran and Mexico. Robert Koehler, in his Variety review, writes that “Nyman's score, performed by his powerful band, alternates between andante and allegro, the latter exploding with his signature locomotive propulsion.” 65 min.
