This chapter discusses Perry Bard’s Man with a Movie Camera: The Global Remake (2008–present). Bard’s collaborative project is an international collective remake of Dziga Vertov’s Man with a Movie Camera (1929) that redeploys Vertov’s kinoks (roving camerapersons/reporters/witnesses dedicated to the making of moving images as “a living evolutionary process” that depicts “life-as-it-is”). They upload their own remade sequences and link them to Vertov’s original frames, which then can be viewed as a part of a database of overlapping uploads that merge into multiple versions of the remade film and/or projected onto urban spaces.
