In a bulleted list, jot down at least 8 things you learned about Man with the Movie Camera's Dziga Vertov and his approach to documentary filmmaking.
Of the three types of Soviet nonfiction films from the 1920s, which does the German propaganda film The Eternal Jew (see embedded video) take on? Can you tell from watching the first 5-10 minutes?
Why is a fiction filmmaker like Sergei Eisenstein discussed in a documentary film textbook?
In our first class period, we discussed three separate creative modes of filmmaking: narrative fiction, documentary, and avant-garde (or experimental). So why is Chapter 4 combining two of these?
Into which avant-garde style (or line) does Land without Bread fall? And Man with a Movie Camera? How do you know? Offer a few examples from each film to support your response.
