Plot synopsis
Mikhail Kaufman's rarely seen solo effort, In Spring can be considered something of a companion piece to Dziga Vertov's Man With The Movie Camera. A gorgeous meditation on daily life in the town and the rural countryside, In Spring presents a more humanistic though no less gripping vision of the modern world than Man With The Movie Camera.
