Dziga Vertov, Man with a Movie Camera, 1929, 103 min.

The highly innovative film presents urban life in the Soviet Union following their inhabitants from dawn to dusk as they work and play. The film is also a playful reflection on the powers of filmic representation as it follows the work of the cameraman throughout the city.
