The City Makes a Spectacle of Itself

feature18.jpgThe Goethe Institute has organized a three night series of films about metropoli in the 20s and 30s, and if you act now you can still catch days two and three of this neat affair. Tonight they screen Man With a Movie Camera, 6304633890.01.MZZZZZZZ.jpgperhaps the most well known work of the great Russian master, and film student hero, Dziga Vertov. Tonight’s program is called ‘City of Ruttmann/City of Vertov’ and will feature a discussion with film prof about town Seth Feldman. Tomorrow’s program ‘Absolute Film in Berlin 1925,’ is all about the confluence of abstract film and that year, and other superimportant ideas. Best of all, the screenings only cost five bucks – that’s your reduced Famous Players pirce halved by the munificent gods of low-cost-high-art screenings.
