For the Russian filmmaker and film theorist Dziga Vertov (1896-1954) KINO was both a bold aesthetic experiment and a document of contemporary life. (Engl./Germ.)
This book presents the Austrian Film Museum’s comprehensive Vertov Collection for the first time: films, photographs, posters, letters as well as a large number of previously unpublished sketches, drawings and writings by Vertov including his extensive autobiographical "Calling Card” from 1947. Additional essays and commentaries by the editors and international contributors intend to stimulate further academic and artistic projects and to "activate” Vertov's legacy for the here and now.
