dir. Dziga Vertov, Soviet Union, 1928, 52 min

Introduced by Ivan Kozlenko, Head of Film Archive and Film Museum at Oleksandr Dovzhenko National Centre

The film is dedicated to the achievements of the Ukrainian Soviet Republic for the eleventh anniversary of the October Revolution. According to Dziga Vertov, The Eleventh Year is written directly by the movie camera, not with the script. Movie camera magic replaces the scriptwriter. The Eleventh Year is created with pure cinematic language, documentary language – the one of facts, and of socialism.

Dziga Vertov was a Soviet Ukrainian pioneer documentary film director, as well as a cinema theorist. His filming practices and theories influenced the cinéma vérité style of documentary movie-making. The Eleventh Year is one of Vertov’s montage-driven documentaries, where the construction of the images creates a complex film that continues to be striking long after the ode to socialist power has become irrelevant.
