Man with a Movie Camera Film Talk: Dr. Janna Jones, Northern Arizona University
“Man with a Movie Camera" Film Talk , from 12:30-1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan 27th, is hosted by Janna Jones. This 1929 Soviet film by Dziga Vertov is an early experimental documentary that depicts daily life in the Soviet Union in 1920s, but it also is full of playful and breathtaking cinematic tricks. Vertov takes full advantage of the observational powers of the film camera, for he wanted to reveal the ways in which the cinema eye can capture ordinary life. This is a silent film and has a total run time of 80 minutes.

Jones is a professor of Creative Media and Film in the School of Communication at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona. A 20th century historian, Jones’ scholarship focuses on the history of cinema-going, historic movie theaters, amateur filmmaking, public exhibition, architectural preservation urban and suburban history, and public art.
