A prose de nice is a short documentary film from the 1930’s of Nice France. It was made by Jean Virgo and Boris Kaufman. Boris was the younger brother of Dziga Vertov a soviet film maker and this film has some obvious soviet inspired imagery. Virgo described the film as such, “in this film, by showing certain basic aspects of a city, a way of life is put on trial… the last gasps of a society so lost in its escapism that it sickens you and makes you sympathetic to a revolutionary solution.” If you are interested in Jean Virgo this site does a better job than wiki breaking him down.
