London/Sydney: Pluto Press. Very Good+ in Near Fine dj. 1984. First Edition. Hardcover. 0-86104-767-2 . [nice tight book with no significant wear, would rate "Fine" but for heavy foxing to the top edge of the text block; jacket shows only light handling wear]. (B&W photographs) "Vertov's writings, collected here, range from calculated manifestoes setting forth a new, heroic vision of film's potential to dark rumination on the inactivity forced upon him by the growing bureaucratization of the Soviet state and its film industry. His theory was at every point elaborated in direct, vigorous relation with practice; his doctrine of the kino-eye, breaking with film's subjection to traditional narrative purposes, was a passionate call to action. Vertov's spirit of revolutionary optimism leaps from his pages." . (Inventory #: 24038)
