Man With a Movie Camera is a 1929 silent documentary film directed by Dziga Vertov. The film attempts to capture a day in the life of an entire city from daylight to sunset.

Instead of concentrating on a small cast of people, all of the citizens are filmed as they interact with each other and make their way around the city, running their daily errands. The film begins with an introduction after which there are no words spoken. The film simply focuses on the scenery and the events that take place within it. In addition to focusing on the lives of the people in the city, it also focuses on the architecture, buildings, machinery and landscapes in the city. The film is considered one of the most innovative silent films of all time.
