Comments: It is an organisational plan for shooting a film project, which became later as Šestaja čast' mira - commissioned by Gostorg (State Commerce of the USSR). Moisej [?] Belenk'ij had obtained the commission for Vertov and was in 1926 deputy director of the Soviet Trade Delegation in Berlin. This indicates that the sketch dates from either 1925 or the beginning of 1926.
