Owen Hatherley talks about his book The Chaplin Machine.

Set against the backdrop of the great Russian revolutionary experiment, he tells the tragic-comedic story of the cinema, art and architecture of the early 20th Century and spotlights the unlikely intersections of East and West.

Filmed at the Cinema Museum in London.

The Chaplin Machine: Slapstick, Fordism and the Communist Avant-Garde is available from Pluto Press.
