Vertov after Progress
Description: It is impossible to grasp Dziga Vertov's film and theoretical work independently of the ideology of progress that informed it. If we accept that this ideology no longer carries the same force for the left, how are we to rethink Vertov's work today, more than 100 years after the October Revolution? Is a Communist film practice possible without some ideology of progress?
