The Nest, 803 Franklin Street, continues its Silent Film Series with a showing of the Soviet era experimental film, “Man With A Movie Camera”, June 4th, 2 PM.

Dr. Jerry Holt of PNC will host the presentation.

In trying to create a new type of cinema, Vertov’s “Man With A Movie Camera” provides an intimate glimpse of ordinary life in the Soviet Union, before Stalin’s rule. As the filmmaker states, “This experimental work aims to create an international language of cinema…”

What emerges is a charming, innocent and unique view of urban Russian culture that is vibrant and alive. Alive, at least in the golden days of 1928, before Stalin consolidated his power and started the Five-Year Plans of forced industrialization and disastrous collective farming and his 20 year reign of terror.

Did the experiment succeed? Stalin’s didn’t. Audience members will decide if Vertov’s film experiment did.

In July the series continues with the Sci-Fi classic, “Aelita, Queen of Mars” featuring the Muscovite Repertory Theatre Company, presented live. “Aelita” was a heavy-handed and at times comically inept Soviet attempt to compete with Hollywood blockbusters.

Admission for series films is $5.
