Menschen untereinander & Unter der LaterneMenschen untereinander & Unter der Laterne

Edition Filmmuseum 83

This double-DVD presents two films by Gerhard Lamprecht, sketching social panoramas of late 1920s Berlin. Menschen untereinander delineates the social microcosm of a tenement building; the tenants represent a cross-section of poverty, corruption and compassion. In Unter der Laterne, the girl Else begins to follow the wrong path after an altercation with her father. The high life turns out to be the first step in a downward spiral.

München 1945 & Zwischen gestern und morgenMünchen 1945 & Zwischen gestern und morgen

Edition Filmmuseum 45

The 2-disc DVD presents newly restored footage which was shot in Munich just a few weeks after it was taken by the American troops on April 30, 1945. We see the enormous damage of the bombings which destroyed about 90% of the center of the city. Harald Braun's Zwischen gestern und morgen was the first post-war film shot in Munich. Love, betrayal and tragedy occur one night in a luxury hotel. Years later the protagonists are united again and face a decade of regrets, hate and unanswered questions caused by the war. Their lives are in ruins, just like the bombed hotel. The film features many former UFA stars, as well as Hildegard Knef who became the first new star of the German post-war cinema.

Nathan der WeiseNathan der Weise

Edition Filmmuseum 10

Manfred Noa's adaptation of Gotthold Ephraim Lessing's stage play is one of the completely forgotten classics of German silent cinema. It is an appeal to peace and tolerance that was violently attacked by the Nazis. The story which takes place againsr the backdrop of religious wars between Christians, Islamists and Jews in 12th-century Jerusalem shows Werner Krauss (Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari) in one of his best roles. The Filmmuseum München has restored the only surviving elements of this silent masterpiece and researched the film's production and reception.

NervenNerven

Edition Filmmuseum 41

In Nerven, writer-director-producer Robert Reinert tried to capture the "nervous epidemic" caused by war and misery which "drives people mad". This unique portrait of the life in 1919 Germany, filmed on location in Munich, describes the cases of different people from all levels of society: Factory owner Roloff who looses his mind in view of catastrophies and social disturbances, teacher John who is the hero of the masses and Marja who turns into a radical revolutionary. Using different fragments the Munich Film Museum could reconstruct this forgotten German classic which is a historic document and anticipates already elements of the Expressionist cinema of the 1920s.

Die ParallelstraßeDie Parallelstraße

Edition Filmmuseum 47

Die Parallelstraße is one of the most mysterious pioneer films of the New German Cinema. It was produced by GBF, a production company for innovative industrial and promotional films and received awards in inter national film festivals. French critic Robert Benayoun called it "a philosophical thriller, a western of meditation which compensates for a whole year of inevitable manifestations of stupidity," Jacques Rivette put it on his list of the most important films of 1968. The DVD presents for the very first time this "unjustly forgotten masterpiece of the New German Cinema" (Martin Brady) as well as several rare shorts by Ferdinand Khittl (1924-1976) which show his talent for innovative film experiments.

Schnitte in Raum und ZeitSchnitte in Raum und Zeit

Edition Filmmuseum 12

A film editor's work is as essential as it is invisible. Its outcome, the finished film, is the result of weeks of concentrated labor. Frequently, in documentary filmmaking, the work's narrative structure is mainly shaped in the editing process. The editor functions as co-author, juggling and organizing the raw material at hand, and structuring the material according to principles of space and time, rhythm and composition. This extensively supplemented 2-disc DVD explores this process in a documentary feature by filmmaker Gabriele Voss, a film editor in her own right. Renowned editors, a brain researcher, as well as writer-director Alexander Kluge, talk about their work, oscillating between craft and art. Selected film clips illustrate the techniques and tricks that make up the magic of film montage.

Der Sekretär & Ein WeimarfilmDer Sekretär & Ein Weimarfilm

Edition Filmmuseum 103

With his "production films", from Ofenbauer, Stars, Der Sekretär and Ein Vertrauensmann to Wäscherinnen, Jürgen Böttcher emancipated himself from the conventions of Socialist Realism and placed the focus of his work inspired by Cinéma vérité and Direct Cinema on pure observation. The commissioned short films Im Pergamonmuseum and Tierparkfilm subversively tested the censors' tight restrictions. In 1977, Böttcher began his long-term collaboration with cinematographer Thomas Plenert, resulting in Im Lohmgrund.
