A man travels around a city with a camera slung over his shoulder, documenting urban life with dazzling invention.

Man with a Movie Camera[ is an experimental 1929 Soviet silent documentary film, directed by Dziga Vertov and edited by his wife Elizaveta SvilovaIt is widely regarded by many as one of the greatest films ever made, having ranked eighth in the 2012 Sight & Sound poll of the world's best films. In 2009, Roger Ebert wrote, "It made explicit and poetic the astonishing gift the cinema made possible, of arranging what we see, ordering it, imposing a rhythm and language on it, and transcending it.
