Berlin: Symphony of a Great City

Berlin, die Sinfonie der Großstadt

Directed by Walter Ruttmann
Germany, 1927


An emblematic ‘city symphony’ film, influenced by the early work of Dziga Vertov, it is structured to follow the life of Berlin and its inhabitants across the course of a single day, from dawn to dusk, to create “a symphonic film with the thousandfold energies that make up the life of a great city.”
