Film Screening: People on Sunday, 1930

Thursday, February 14, 6:30 pm
Silver Center, Room 300 (enter at 32 Waverly Place)

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. Introduced by Noah Isenberg, George Christian Centennial Professor and Chair of the Department of Radio-Television-Film, University of Texas at Austin, and editor Weimar Cinema: An Essential Guide to Classic Films of the Era.

All programs are free of charge, no reservations, capacity limited, and subject to change. Photo ID required for entrance to NYU buildings.
