Enthusiasm is Vertov’s first sound film and, as we would expect, far-reaching in its experiments on how sound could transform documentary film. Structured in three-movement form, the film explores how the First Five-Year Plan for economic development (1928–32) has and will transform Soviet life across the Union. The film is classic Vertov, reflexively attending to its process of construction and yet insisting on the documentary quality of both its sound and image materials. This screening will be the restoration version completed by Peter Kubelka. Digital restoration courtesy of Austrian Film Archive. In Russian with English subtitles. (2K DCP Presentation)
