‘Man with a Movie Camera’ Montopolis Live Score Performance

The Montopolis live musical score to the 1929 Ukrainian documentary Man with a Movie Camera has toured across the country in 2023 to rave reviews from both critics and audiences alike. Revered as a visual masterpiece and one of the greatest documentaries ever made, the film gives historical context to the current Russian invasion and lays bare the costs of the ongoing humanitarian catastrophe. The joyful, original live score celebrates the beauty and resilience of Ukraine’s people and aims to inspire American audiences to support the country in its time of need. Cellist Sara Nelson (Brandi Carlile, David Byrne, Austin Symphony) will be joining pianist and composer Justin Sherburn and guitarist Gunner Ross for the Houston performance. Buster Keaton’s silent 18-minute film The Scarecrow opens.

Man with a Movie Camera is an experimental 1929  Soviet silent documentary film, directed by Dziga Vertov, filmed by his brother Mikhail Kaufman, and edited by his wife Yelizaveta Svilova.

Montopolis is partnering with the relief organization Bird of Light Ukraine to raise awareness of the ongoing refugee crisis. Donations for Bird of Light will be accepted in the lobby and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to support their efforts.

Concessions available for purchase.
