Dir. Dziga Vertov (1930).
Almost wordless, Dziga Vertovs first sound film was subtitled Symphony of the Donbasand its an extremely modern symphony to be sure, filled with abrupt transitions and cacophonous machine music, making brilliant use of asynchronous, contrapuntal, artfully mismatched sound.
