The Weimar Republic (1918 to 1933), was the freest state on German soil; a wild era characterized by disruption, crisis and cultural brilliance. It was also the most important period of German Cinema, a time full of wonders and invention. The aesthetic foundations were laid for the “seventh art”; Weimar’s directors like Murnau, Lang, Lubitsch, Pabst, Wilder, Sternberg and Ruttmann are still legendary today, their stars Marlene Dietrich, Louise Brooks, Emil Jannings and Conrad Veidt are unforgotten, and films like NOSFERATU, METROPOLIS, M and DER BLAUE ENGEL unfold their unique aura. It was the most important period of German Cinema, a time full of wonders and invention. Rüdiger Suchsland’s VON CALIGARI ZU HITLER is the first feature documentary ever on German Cinema of the 20’s and tells the story of German Cinema between Expressionism and New Sobriety.

In the presence of Rüdiger Suchsland and Martina Haubrich (Producer).
