Vertov. Kinoks: A revolution.

“You–filmmakers, you directors and artists with nothing to do,
all you confused cameramen and writers scattered throughout the
A friendly warning;
Don’t hide your heads like ostriches.
Raise your eyes,
Look around you–
It’s obvious to me
as to any child
The innards,
the guts of strong sensations
are tumbling out
of cinema’s belly,
ripped open on the reef of revoultion.
See them dragging along,
leaving a bloody trail on the earth
that quivers with horror and disgust.
It’s all over.”
(Kinoks: A Revolution, Kino-Eye, p. 13)
