ALTAR's second ethnographic film screening will be A Sixth Part of the World, a poetic travelogue of 1920s Russia by Dziga Vertov. Unlike Flaherty’s narrative style with a linear progression of time in Nanook of the North, Vertov’s editing approach stressed the rhythm and juxtaposition of images which came to be known as montage – a style that created a new aesthetic in documentary filmmaking.
