The film ‘Berlin: Symphony of a Metropolis’ is a 1927 film directed by Walter Ruttmann, co-written by Carl Mayer and Karl Freund.
The film is an example of the city symphony film genre. A musical score for an orchestra to accompany the silent film was written by Edmund Meisel. As a “city symphony” film, it portrays the life of a city, mainly through visual impressions in a semi-documentary style, without the narrative content of more mainstream films, though the sequencing of events can imply a kind of loose theme or impression of the city’s daily life.
The film will be shown in Meeting Point Cinema Sarajevo at 8 p.m. and the entrance is free for all.
