From the Paper:

""Man with a Movie Camera" illustrates a truly radical work of art. The film depicts not merely a day in the life of a city but is additionally a study of the art of filmmaking. Not only does the film demonstrate that art can transform consciousness, but the view actually can observe just how consciousness is transformed. Vertov was committed to the concept of the socialist documentary but aligned himself with the futurists. He firmly believed that "the kino-glaz [the eye of cinema] was ideal for revealing the world of ordinary people" (Dashiell 1)."
