``Kino Pravda`` is a series of 23 ``newsreels`` by Vertov (1922-1925). The best-known of them is No. 21, ``21-aya Kino-Pravda Leninskaya - K godovshchine smerty`` (1925), which commemorates the first anniversary of Lenin`s death. Each newsreel runs ca. 30 min.


 Quote: Working mainly during the 1920s, Vertov promoted the concept of kino-pravda, or film-truth, through his newsreel series. His driving vision was to capture fragments of actuality which, when organized together, showed a deeper truth which could not be seen with the naked eye. In the ``Kino-Pravda`` series, Vertov focused on everyday experiences, eschewing bourgeois concerns and filming marketplaces, bars, and schools instead, sometimes with a hidden camera, without asking permission first.
