Description: The Hefbrug, the topics of The Bridge, is not a specially pretty or monumental bridge. But Ivens’ achievement is to convey the importance of this bridge for the entire of Rotterdam. We have a sense of the commercial imperatives behind the bridge, and the intricacy of the mechanism required to swing the bridge or raise the rail decking to let ships to pass through.

Description: The movie was produced as a compilation film. Blum reported in “Film-Kurier“ (5.11.1928): "It will be assembled from excerpts of partly unpublished Ukrainian films.

Based on concepts by Dziga Vertov, and largely assembled from the last reel of his movie 'The Eleventh Year', this compilation presents an explicit critique of the very technology that Vertov sought to praise, stressing the dark side of industrialization—hands mangled in workplace accidents, train wrecks, coffins—and connects to a particularly German concern with the negative results of technology stretching from the Romantics to Heidegger, Horkheimer, and Adorno in the twentieth century.
