New CIA building taking shape; set for December completion
The Alloy Orchestra accompanies
Russia | 1929 | Dziga Vertov
For their second show tonight (see The Orchestra), Boston’s Alloy Orchestra will present the first Cleveland performance of what is often cited as their best score. It’s for Man with a Movie Camera, a Constructivist Soviet silent that, in this year’s Sight & Sound poll, was voted the eighth best movie of all time! Vertov’s dizzying city symphony is a whirling, swooping work that breathlessly employs every camera and editing trick known at the time to capture the rhythm, movement, and vitality of “modern” 1920s Soviet life (as well as demonstrate the possibilities of pure cinema). Eschewing title cards and comprised of almost 1800 individual shots, Man with a Movie Camera is one of the most radical and influential—and fun—avant-garde features ever made. The Alloy Orchestra’s addition of music, percussion, and sound effects should raise the roof!
Special admission $15, Cinematheque members $12, ages 25 & under $9 (with proof of age). Attend both of tonight’s Alloy Orchestra performances (see previous blurb) for only $5 more! Advance tickets available at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/268317.
