Michael Nyman has composed unforgettable scores for films like The Piano, Gattaca and Wonderland. In 2002 he wrote a thrilling score to accompany screenings of Dziga Vertov’s 1929 Soviet classic Man with a Movie Camera. Nyman has such a high regard for the film that he has now constructed his own tribute to Vertov with a shot-for-shot reconstruction of the film using music and images from his own archives that he has collated over the past two decades. Nyman’s aim is to recreate Vertov’s guiding principle of capturing the little moments of everyday life that we never normally see in a cinema. The result is a unique, giddy love letter from one artist to another that allows us to see a classic film and the wider world through fresh eyes.
