Notes

Mikhail Kaufman, the director of photography, was also Vertov's brother. A second episode of MAN WITH A MOVIE CAMERA was created by Kaufman without Vertov, as the brothers had a falling-out shortly after MAN WITH A MOVIE CAMERA's premiere and never worked together again. The film's editor, Elizaveta Svilova, was also Vertov's wife. Vertov, Kaufman, and Svilova formed the core of a group of experimental communist filmmakers who called themselves Kino-Eye, attempting to forge a new language of film that did not depend on capitaslist-dominated fictional conventions.
