Runtime: 68 mins

Genre: Documentary

Part documentary and part cinematic art, this film follows a city in the 1920s Soviet Union throughout the day, from morning to night. Directed by Dziga Vertov, with a variety of complex and innovative camera shots, the film depicts scenes of ordinary daily life in Russia. Vertov celebrates the modernity of the city, with its vast buildings, dense population and bustling industries. While there are no titles or narration, Vertov still naturally conveys the marvels of the modern city.

This screening will begin with a short 10-15 minute introduction from the Liverpool Architectural Society, and is part of a series:

Tue 21 Sep, 18:30: Man With Movie Camera

Tue 12 Oct, 18:30: I Am Cuba

Tue 2 Nov, 18:30: Don't Look Now

This screening is part of our Community Cinema. If you're an artist, independent filmmaker, charity, film club, or arts organisation, find out how FACT can support your film screening.

The Liverpool Architectural Society was founded in 1848, making it one of the oldest architectural societies in the world. Remaining independent for almost 140 years, in 1987 it merged with the Merseyside branch of the Royal Institute of British Architects.

Whilst most of its members are chartered architects, the society also welcomes people who have an interest in architecture to join. Events, such as visits to local buildings, lectures and seminars are organised throughout the year; and traditionally there’s a weekend away to look at buildings in a major European city.
