Kolybelnaya 1937
Lullaby, aka A Song of the Liberated Soviet Woman, was Vertov’s last major film, made to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the October revolution.

It focuses on the women and the role of motherhood, featuring images from across the Soviet Union, in particular the Far East. In that way, it resembles his earlier films thematically, especially A Sixth Part of the World (1926). The film features a toned down version of his famous montage style, and is structured around the lullabies that are sung to children by their mothers across the country. The songs are ostensibly representative of the local culture and folklore, although all of the melodies and lyrics were in fact written specifically for the production of this film.
