The film is remarkable for its experimental use of sound and montage. Vertov himself invented special lightweight recording equipment to register the sounds of workers in the mines and factories of the Don Basin in this film. It is the best example of his theory of cinema which brings together "the film-eye and the radio-ear." At one point he described the film as a "symphony of noises." "I would never have believed it possible to assemble mechanical noises to create such beauty. One of the most superb symphonies I have known. Dziga Vertov is a musician." –Charles Chaplin http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=279980 Anthology Film Archives Anthology Film Archives
