The year 1929 is not only the year of the release of Man with a Movie Camera, but also a year of its deliberate anti-thesis, Kaufman's In Spring, a metaphor of revolution. In this film, especially the poetry of the water element comes up in its various forms: icebergs melt, rivers flood over, canals overflow, an image flickers in the water pool with a freely released camera circling overhead. Half way through its runtime, the movie resembles a film essay rather than a political manifesto. Subsequently, however, we move to a construction site, and an incredible trick part is being incorporated into the film.
Dziga Vertov's elder brother, whose mutual cooperation reached a peak with Man with a Movie Camera (1929), followed by a lifelong artistic rift between the two. His Kiyvan urban symphony In Spring is, in the view of many film critics, the most significant 1929 film, itself a poetic response to Vertov's work. The screening will be accompanied with live music by Jan Kašpar (Obelisk of Light).
