Man with a Movie Camera

6:30 Concert Series

Tue., Apr. 23, 2019 · 6:30pm

This event will take place in the Weidner Center's Cofrin Family Hall.

Film magazine Sight & Sound placed Russian director Dziga Vertov’s 1929 film Man with a Movie Camera at the top of their list of Greatest Documentaries of All Time and in the top ten in their list of Greatest Films of All Time. Vertov believed that the camera was an extension of the human eye, capable of capturing “the chaos of visual phenomena filling the universe.” Through his eyes we see the ebb and flow of everyday life over the course of a one day in Moscow.

The screening of this visionary film will be accompanied by a new live score composed by UWGB Professor of Music Michelle McQuade Dewhirst and will be performed by UWGB Music faculty.

This series in funded in part by a grant from the Green Bay Public Arts Commission.
