Constructivism in Film examines the radical experiments of early Soviet filmmakers, with special emphasis on the relationship of Constructivist film to contemporary literature, painting, architecture and design. Surveying the socio-political aspects of the Constructivist movement as well, Vlada Petrić then analyzes in detail the most important silent film produced during this era, Dziga Vertov's The Man with the Movie Camera (1929). This updated edition contains a new chapter about the descriptive score of the film.
