An experimental film scenario written by György Gerö, based on a book by Lajos Kassák and Imre Pál The History of the Isms [Pal Azizmusck tostenek], Magveto Budapest, 1972, and first published in 1924 in the dadaist review IS. The original scene-by-scene film script and complete scenario of the film consist of 4 pages currently housed in the Budapest City Archives. Gerö never completed the film. Bruce Checefsky later made a film inspired by Gerö's script, Béla (2009, 35mm, black & white, sound, 6:29 min) .
Lajos Kassák's review of the Dokumentum (1924) includes a descriptive passage of Gerö's conceptual theory as well as several key filmmaking techniques.
Gerö was spared political prison, declared a neurotic and placed into a private hospital where all traces of him were lost.
