Nyman With A Movie Camera 
In NYman With A Movie Camera, Michael Nyman revisits one of the high-points of his career: the composition of his now-famous score for Dziga Vertov's Man With A Movie Camera
(1929), film #9 on the Essential 100 list. In a partial attempt to deconstruct the master's invention of montage, Nyman began videotaping things around him, substituting new images, shot-for-shot, for Vertov’s own, and then reapplying his score. The seemingly random images tease us into imagining a story, but in our frustration to fit the pieces together, we pay attention to Nyman’s original score – and through it, we come to feel the narrative connections between the two films.
Running September 12 to 19 in Cinema 5 at TIFF Bell Lightbox.
Michael Nyman will be in attendance on September 12.
