Groupe Dziga Vertov
The Dziga Vertov Group is a film collective founded in 1968 by Jean-Luc Godard and Jean-Pierre Gorin to produce militant films with a Maoist orientation. The name of the collective refers to the Soviet director Dziga Vertov (1896-1954), but it is also influenced by the ideas of Bertolt Brecht (1898-1956). All the films are signed collectively, including Un film comme les autres, Pravda, Vent d’Est, Luttes en Italie, Vladimir et Rosa, Tout va bien. The group dissolved shortly after making Letter to Jane in 1972.
