Years before they moved to Hollywood, four young German filmmakers—later noir masters Robert Siodmak and Edgar G. Ulmer, and future Oscar winners Billy Wilder and Fred Zinneman—collaborated on this effervescent, sunlit silent about city dwellers enjoying a weekend outing in Weimar-era Berlin. Combining documentary footage with dramatic storytelling, this experimental film became a mainstream hit, presaging both Italian neorealism and the French New Wave. 73 min., black-and-white, silent.
With Wally Reinhardt, artist, and Dennis Geronimus, Associate Professor and Chair of Art History, NYU, and co-curator of the exhibition. Please note time change (formerly 6:30 pm).
What was it like to be a Jew in Nazi Germany? For those trapped in the Nazi terror regime, mere survival became a nightmare. Those who went underground, including Fritz Ascher, endured the terrors of nightly bombings and the even greater fear of being discovered by the Nazis. All were pressed to the limits of human endurance and loneliness. Marion Kaplan, Skirball Professor of Modern Jewish History, NYU, and Rachel Stern, Director of the Fritz Ascher Society for Persecuted, Ostracized, and Banned Art and Curator of Fritz Ascher, will discuss.
