Vertov, Dziga. Re kino-eye.

“Until now, we have violated the movie camera and forced it to copy the work of our eye.  And the better the copy, the better the shooting was thought to be.  Starting today we are liberating the camera and making it work in the opposite direction — away from copying.  The weakness of the human eye is manifest.  We affirm the kino-eye, discovering within the chaos of movement the result of the kino-eye’s own movement; we affirm the kino-eye with its own dimensions of time and space, growing in strength and potential to the point of self-affirmation.” — Kino-Eye, pg. 16
