As Vertov was many things to many people, MOMA has recruited an impressive list of Vertovians to introduce his work (and that of his colleagues). These include avant-garde filmmakers Peter Kubelka (who re-synchronized Enthusiasm in the late ‘60s) and Ken Jacobs (who introduced me to Man With a Movie Camera around the same time and is in many ways a contemporary Vertov), along with Guy Madden (who produced a faux–Soviet montage film with Heart of the World), theorist Annette Michelson, historians Yuri Tsivian and John MacKay, critic Alexander Horvath, artist William Kentridge, and composer Michael Nyman (author of rousing new scores for One Sixth of the World and The Eleventh Year).
