Dziga Vertov Group
Pravda (1969)
The russian term "Pravda" means "truth" and also the name of the official newspaper in the USSR. The Dziga Vertov group -- Jean-Luc Godard and Jean-Henri Roger -- departs from this double meaning to, with images from Czechslovaquia (a Czech tv presenter, daily life scenes, workers and Czech passer-bys) show how images and sounds can lie to the spectator and to proof, at the same time, that capitalism is still strongly present in the eastern countries.
