Kino-Eye is both a documentary and a classic propaganda film, showing the joie de vivre of Soviet youth in a small village taking hold of their destiny, and building the future of the Soviet revolution. They stick propaganda posters on the walls, hand out fliers calling on the population to buy from the cooperative, and help people in need. Kino-Eye is perhaps the most successful application of Dziga Vertov's principles. The film shows the incredible force of his theories, but also the beauty and energy of the message transmitted through simple, so-called documentary images, transformed from raw material into cinematic discourse and spectacle.

Kino-eye: A collection of excerpts from newsreels and documentary films of Soviet life in the early 1920s made by Vertov and his "Kino-Eye" group. Highlighted are the activities of Soviet children and Young Pioneers and Young Leninists interwoven with cinematic experiments as when Vertov charts the evolution of hamburger and bread by following its trail back to the farms and wheat fields from whence it came. An honest documentary of a society fresh from revolution, buoyed by idealism. "The final reel no longer exists but has been approximated through the use of carefully selected outtake footage."
