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.
