Kino-Eye (Life Off-Guard)
Dir. Dziga Vertov (1923).
Subtitled Life Unawares, Vertovs first documentary feature used a hidden camera and a bag of cine-tricks to celebrate the Young Pioneers and document sundry social problems. The big movie theaters would not even open their doors to such an abomination, the filmmaker would brag.
