Total runtime 60min
In Weimar Germany, music was integral to the cinema-going experience: silent films inspired ambitious orchestral scores, while sound-era musicals spawned hit songs for a mass audience. Making use of film clips, Philharmonia Orchestra’s Weimar Berlin: Bittersweet Metropolis series advisor Gavin Plumley and BFI season programmer Margaret Deriaz will explore the relationship between music and film in 20s and 30s Germany.
