    Man with a Movie Camera

    It's 125 years since the birth of Dziga Vertov, the Russian documentary film and newsreel director. That's a good excuse, says WNYC's Sara Fishko, to look at his remarkable and pioneering 1920s film Man with a Movie Camera, the subject of this Fishko Files. (Produced in 2011)

    Man with a Movie Camera is streaming on Kanopy and Vudu and available to rent or buy on Amazon.
