Wunder der Schöpfung by Hanns Walter Kornblum( Visual )

2 editions published in 2009 in German and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Doku-Drama, mit dem Hanns Walter Kornblum (1878-1970), der sich auf Lehrfilme und Märchenverfilmungen spezialisiert hatte, nichts Geringeres anstrebte, als "das gesamte damalige Wissen der Menschheit über die Erde und über das Weltall darzustellen". Man erlebt astronomische Forschung im Wandel der Geschichte, erfährt viel über die Gesetzmäßigkeiten der Erde, der Sonne, des Mondes, der Sterne und des Weltalls. Visionär nimmt Kornblum die Raumfahrt vorweg. Vielfältig verknüpft der Film verschiedene Elemente und entfesselt eine nicht nur für damalige Verhältnisse verblüffende Tricktechnik. So wird das komplexe Thema trotz textlastiger Zwischentitel anschaulich gemacht, wobei einige Längen durch die raffinierten Farbeindrücke ausgeglichen werden. [film-dienst]
