Dziga Vertov

I will start a series about Dziga Vertov with an animation made by him in 1924: Советские игрушки (Soviet Toys). It is a perfect example of Constructivist movie, and as any Constructivist artwork it is doing Communist propaganda: the avantgarde of the 20's, totally committed politically; they were viewing their art as a basis for the creation of a new world. Their art was simple, direct, resolute, optimist, radical. Then came the 30's.
