Abstract:

"With Berlin, die Sinfonie der Großstadt, Walther Ruttmann directed the landmark film of the 1920s symphonic cityscapes, with Melodie der Welt he shot the first German sound feature. This 2-disc DVD set presents both these classics in newly restored versions and adds all the surviving short films he directed between 1921 and 1931. Ruttmann's innovative experimentations in movement, color and sound confirm his status as a pioneer of modern media art."--Container.

Berlin, die Sinfonie der Grossstadt: "Shows us one day in Berlin, the rhythm of that time, starting at the earliest morning and ends in the deepest night"--Imdb.

Melodie der Welt: "An impression of the state of the world in 1929, contrasting similarities and differences in religion, customs, art and entertainment from all over the world. The film is constructed like a symphony"--Imdb.

In der Nacht: A sound short which transforms music to images and is a prototype of modern music videos.

Walther Ruttmann: der Visionär bewegter Rhythmen: A radio feature.

With Weekend, "Ruttmann's brief audiomontage, recorded 1930, remains one of the most outstanding experiments in sound ever made. A film without film, Weekend was originally conceived to explore the potential of emerging sound-on-film technology. The story of a weekend in Berlin, presented on imageless film: a symphony of sound, speech-fragments and silence, perfected by cutting and mixing. A purely acoustical film"--Http://www.otherfilm.org/site.php?id=70.
