Man With A Movie Camera with live musical score by Jimmy Carr!

Jimmy Carr & friends present a live score to Dziga Vertov’s masterwork Man With A Movie Camera. Recently voted the most important non-fiction film ever made by Sight & Sound Magazine, Man With A Movie Camera shows 24 hours in a single day of a Russian city. It took Vertov four years to film this day, and he worked in three cities: Moscow, Kiev and Odessa. His wife Yelizaveta Svilova supervised the editing from about 1,775 separate shots and the cinematography was by his brother, Mikhail Kaufman. Vertov felt film was locked into the tradition of stage plays, and it was time to discover a new style that was specifically cinematic-movies should move with the speed of our minds when one is free-associating, or with the speed of a passionate musical composition. Multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire Jimmy Carr brings his captivating musical machine-age musings to the live scoring of this endlessly fascinating film!
