Oktoberfest München 1910-1980

Edition Filmmuseum 89

A unique collection of film documents about the Munich Oktoberfest: early silent footage and amateur films, newsreel clips and TV shows, experiments with color, 3-D, CinemaScope, and multi-channel sound - and works of New German Cinema directors like Ferdinand Khittl, Herbert Achternbusch and Percy Adlon. We see how the most popular fairground attractions and the media have changed with the fashion of the times. The fascinating 2-disc DVD includes a booklet with an illustrated essay by Elisabeth Angermair about the history of the Oktoberfest.
