Three songs about Lenin = Tri pesni o Lenine / a Mezhrabpom Film production, script and direction by Dziga Vertov, new release prepared by E. Svilova-Vertova, I. Kopalin, S. Pumpyanskaya (USSR, 1934, 59 min.).
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."
Three songs about Lenin: Lenin as revealed through the eyes of the Russian people, represented by three songs. The first, "My face was in a dark prison," concerns the life of a young Muslim woman. "We loved him" deals with Lenin's life and death. The third song, "In a big city of stone," shows the accomplishments of his rule.
