Tower Bawher by Theodore Ushev, National Film Board of Canada

One of my favourite ipad apps has to be The National Film Board of Canada app.

For those not familiar, the NFB is Canada’s twelve-time Academy Award-winning public film and digital media producer and distributor. An agency within the Government of Canada, the NFB produces and distributes documentary films, animation, web documentaries and alternative dramas. In total they have produced well over 13,000 productions which have won over 5,000 awards

The app is full of gems like this animated short by Theodore Ushev. The 4 minute video offers viewers a whirlwind tour of Russian constructivist art and is filled with visual references to artists of the era, including Vertov, Stenberg, Rodchenko, Lissitsky and Popova.
