Modern Cinema - Film in the Weimar Republic

Film in der Weimarer Republik

Deutsche Kinemathek - Museum für Film und Fernsehen

100 years of Weimar, 100 years of modern cinema — we look back at the relationship between cinema and everyday culture, the innovations of the film trade and the emergence of film criticism and theory in the 1920s.

Like no other art form, cinema reflected the spirit of the modern era: fashion and sports, mobility and urban life, gender issues and the emergence of psychoanalysis characterize the films of the period, which would have a profound influence on international film aesthetics.
