"In this program, art historian Briony Fer analyzes the techniques and applications of film montage as they developed in the 1920s in the Soviet Union and Germany. By comparing and contrasting clips from October and Strike; Man with a Movie Camera; and Berlin - Symphony of a Great City, she illustrates how Sergei Eisenstein, Dziga Vertov, and Walter Ruttmann employed montage to address the concept of the crowd as a heroic protagonist, the collective experience of going to the cinema, and other topics. Dr. Fer also juxtaposes the ideologies of Soviet Moscow and Weimar Berlin as presented in these films." -- Container.
