Addressing the founding event of the then-brief history of the USSR, Eisenstein took both his concept of historical film and his experiments with montage to a new level. The film never was completed. The second period is characterized by a shift to individualized narratives that sprang from a synchronic understanding of montage inspired by his foray into dialectical materialism as a guiding principle.
Beginning with his initial work in the Proletkult, Eisenstein adapted montage to the cinema and expanded his theories throughout his career to encompass the internal nature of the image. Down with the bourgeois fairy-tale script! His interest in a strong personality — in contrast to the early focus on a mass protagonist — emerged gradually over the s.
Synchronized sound was a contentious issue with Soviet film theorist. Analyzing movement was a step in the reconstitution of the body and the machine. Cinematography generates a similar relational dialectic with images and referents, and through the logic of montage.
In Man with a Movie Camera, Vertov constructs one sequence- scarcely definable as a "scene"- through the dominant movement of circularity, displaying industrial threading machines and human movements that performed circularly.

Earlier, Strike and Potemkin also used a broad range of typage performed by non-actors emphasising features of group identity and social types. Island of the Young Pioneers enters into a role-playing relationship between and with children that seeks to build an understanding between them.
In the Art of the Cinema, Kuleshov issues a challenge to non-fiction filmmakers: Further, any dialectical potential for sound had already been explored in cinema, since musical accompaniment had a well established history by the time synchronized sound had been introduced.
The schema of connection is based on the necessity of rapidity. Film, and more specifically newsreel, encountered life as it happened and created synthesis from life, rather than an assemblage of representational objects that approach but never capture life. With a background in theatre and design, Eisenstein attempted to translate the lessons of Griffith and the lessons of Karl Marx into a singular audience experience.
