- As with many of the Kinoks' films trains often appear in Dziga Vertov's 1929 masterpiece, 'Man with a Movie Camera'. Used to create dynamism, criss-crossing the screen, often at dramatic angles, and acting as a counterpoint to previous and following scenes. Train sequences also signpost a journey to Odesa by the eponymous cameraman. The paper describes the various train sequences in the film and also shows that many of the particular railway themes are a re-use or continuation of those in previous Kinoks' films of the 1920's.
