V 154

Kinoglaz do konca ne ubili... (Kinoglaz is not totally beaten...)
Due to the numerous crossings-outs, this document may be regarded rather as an emotional barometer than a text that is illuminating as far as the content is concerned. Nevertheless a trace of bitterness and melancholy can be read into it: his assistant Svilova had been working for 25 "film years"; Kaufman was also still alive ? and together with Vertov they had once been the driving force behing the Kinoglaz Project, yet now they were exhausted and spent. The final annihilation of the movement was expected at any moment.
