The 42nd Denver Film Festival is thrilled to host a special program on Sunday, November 3 featuring Denver’s own DeVotchKa live scoring the classic experimental 1929 Soviet silent documentary film, Man with a Movie Camera.
Offering a slice of Soviet life in 1929, Dziga Vertov’s silent documentary, Man with a Movie Camera is considered a masterpiece of early cinema for its technical experimentation. It’s at once a chronicle of daily activity in Moscow, Odessa, and Kiev and a study in avant-garde filmmaking itself, gleefully employing jump cuts, freeze frames, split screens, tracking shots, and many other devices that pushed the boundaries of the medium at the time.
Date: Sunday, November 3rd
Time: 8:30 p.m.
Phipps IMAX Theatre
Member Price: $40.00 (Denver Film)
Denver’s own DeVotchKa also has a reputation for technical experimentation, having scored everything from runaway 2006 hit Little Miss Sunshine to the Denver Center for the Performing Arts’ 2016 production of Sweeney Todd. Now the band has composed music for Vertov’s Man with a Movie Camera — and they’ll be performing it live at this special screening.
