Celebrating its 90 year anniversary, Dziga Vertov’s astonishing silent movie will be screened with an exceptional and powerful new score by The Cabinet of Living Cinema. Created in 1929, the film documents city life in Russia told through a dazzling mix of imagery and experimental filmmaking techniques. From dawn to dusk, Vertov takes the viewer on a tour of Moscow, Odessa and Kiev, showing the hussle and bussle of these historic cities through the eyes of the camera.
The Cabinet will end selected tour perfomances with a performance of their latest living graphic novel Mary Shelley’s Future Shocks which brings together cinematic archive with Mary Shelley and Yuval Harari’s words to explore the future of humanity “upgraded” by artificial intelligence.
