Berlin - die Sinfonie der Großstadt & Melodie der Welt by Walter Ruttmann( Visual )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in German and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Walther Ruttmann is a pioneer of modern multimaedia art. His first short films are unique experiments with forms, colors, and rhythm, his innovative commercials connected abstract animation art with concrete messages. The symphonic documentary Berlin, die Sinfonie der Grossstadt is one of the most famous silent cassics, the travelogue Melodie der Welt became the first German sound feature film. With the radio play Weekend Ruttmann created the first "sound film without images" while his short In der Nacht transforms music to images and is a prototype of modern music videos. The 2-disc DVD combines for the first time all surviving works by Walther Ruttmann from 1920-1931 in newly restored and reconstructed versions, often with original scores. It also includes lobby cards, posters, programs and text documents as well as little known paintings and drawings by Ruttmann." [Publisher's website.]

Berlin, symphony of a great city by Walter Ruttmann( Visual )

15 editions published between 1927 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This early experimental film captures a day and a night in the city of Berlin circa 1926. The film is a symphony of visual impressions inspired by the work of the great Dziga Vertov, director of Man With A Movie Camera. Because Ruttmann's work was not censored like Vertov's, this film helped to bring Vertov's editing techniques and theories to an international audience when it was released in 1927. Berlin Symphony Of A Great City is an attempt to capture the texture of a city's life. Despite the initial involvement of writer Carl Meyer and the accomplished camerawork of Karl Freund, this is Walter Ruttmann's film. Ruttmann carried the lyrical aesthetic of his paintings and abstract films into the shaping of this experimental film, where the city itself is the central character. The city's architecture, the streets, and the machinery of industry along with the citizens of Berlin, are woven together to create a poetic document of a great European metropolis captured in action. "Since I began in the cinema, I had the idea of making something out of life, of creating a symphonic film out of the millions of energies that comprise the life of a big city." Walter Ruttmann
