Silent Movie Weekend
Experience the groundbreaking brilliance of Dziga Vertov's silent masterpiece, which, through innovative editing and cinematic techniques, captures the pulse of urban Soviet life. It reveals a captivating blend of work, play, and modernity, accompanied by an orchestral score by Michael Nyman.
Like the musical Chicago that won the Best Picture Academy Award and five other Oscars in 2002, this original film adaptation is based on the 1926 hit Broadway play by Maurine Watkins. It's a terrifically entertaining mix of humor and melodrama as well as a pungent critique of trash journalism.
