BERLIN: SYMPHONY OF A GREAT CITY (Germany, 1927, 72 min.)

City Silents

Shown as part of Our Cities, Our Planet

Experience one day in 1920s Berlin. Using visual impressions in a semi-documentary style, this “city symphony" silent film portrays Berlin in the early part of the 20th Century. Not burdened with narration or plot, the film is an avant-garde impression of the city’s daily life, connected only by the theme of the train and streetcar. The events of the film are arranged to simulate the passage of a single day (assembled from film shot over a one year span). Directed by Walter Ruttmann. Recorded orchestral score by Timothy Brock.
