Berlin, Symphony of a Great City

At once an invaluable photographic record of life in Weimer Berlin and a timeless demonstration of the cinema's ability to enthrall on a purely visceral level, Berlin, Symphony of a Great City (Berlin, die Symphonie der Grosstadt) offers a kaleidoscopic view of a single day in the life of a bustling metropolis. Carl Mayer (The Last Laugh), influenced by the naturalistic Kammerspiel movement, envisioned "a melody of pictures" sprung from daily reality instead of the stylized artificiality of the studio-bound expressionist film. Following Mayer's rough outline, photographer Karl Freund deployed a team of cameramen to explore the avenues, alleyways and factories of Berlin and secure hidden-camera glimpses of the people and machinery that provide the city with its constant motion. The ma [...]

The Gathering of Men, 1889 to 1924

After WWI Adolf Hitler attends the meetings of the German Workers Party, a far right political party centred around racism and anti-Semitism; the natural home for Adolf Hitler's political beliefs. He rapidly works his way up and builds a loyal following of the most brutal men in Germany. Capitalising from the broken state of Germany post WWI Hitler sets about his revolution. The infamous Beer Hall Putsch of 1923 was superficially a failure which saw Hitler arrested, imprisoned and silenced from speaking. But this was only the beginning of a reign of terror.

Implementation of Terror, 1925 to 1939

Two key events of the late 1920's see the foundations of the National Socialist Party firmly cemented in nations psyche: the ban on Hitler's public speaking was lifted and Wall Street crashed. The devastating mix of propaganda and unbridled terror caused the German nation to fall under his spell, seemingly oblivious to the racial hatred being doled. WWII loomed, the manufacture of weapons meant unemployment was a thing of the past and the economy bloomed and so Nazi popularity would soar.

A Film Unfinished

This potent documentary uses a long-lost film reel to illustrate how the Nazis controlled and manipulated images of Jewish life during World War II. Though the Nazis made a propaganda movie of contented Jews in the Warsaw ghetto, the missing spool exposes the truth. Director Yael Hersonski shows how the imagery was staged to distort historical knowledge and, with the aid of Jewish survivors' testimony, chronicles the horrifying reality of ghetto life.
