Trailer for ATOM and ELLIE Award-winning short film by Karen Pearlman.
Inspired by a true story, "Woman with an Editing Bench" celebrates Elizaveta Svilova, the editor of Dziga Vertov’s 1929 masterpiece "Man with a Movie Camera" (#1 on the "Sight and Sound" list of Best Documentaries of all time). By referencing Svilova’s own kinetically exhilarating montage style, “Woman with an Editing Bench” reveals her fierce tenacity and fleet thinking as she dodges the bureaucracy and sustains revolutionary filmmaking in spite of Stalin’s oppression. "Woman with an Editing Bench" is “a beautifully realised and brilliant homage to Svilova and a celebration of the art of film editing”, Lawrie Silverstrin, ASE, Australian Screen Editors Guild Newsletter, September 2016.
