Originally produced as individual silent motion pictures in France, the Netherlands, Germany, and the United States, these twenty-five short films epitomize the avant garde movement of the 1920's and 1930's. The films are drawn from the collection assembled by Raymond Rohauer, one of the nation's foremost proponents of experimental cinema, founder of the Hollywood Film Society, and longtime programmer at the Coronet Theatre in Los Angeles. Rohauer helped preserve and promote avant-garde cinema, and these films from his personal archive are some of the most influential and eclectic short films made during the 20th Century

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

PICTURING A METROPOLIS is part of the film retrospective UNSEEN CINEMA that explores long-forgotten American experimental cinema.. Since the beginning of cinema, filmmakers have been infatuated with capturing on film dynamic images of New York City. Avant-garde experiments pop up in the most unlikely of places including turn of the 20th century actualities, and commercial and radical newsreels. City symphonies are represented by the landmark American films, Sheeler and Strand’s Manhatta (1921), Flaherty’s 24-Dollar Island (c,1926), Florey’s Skyscraper Symphony (1929), and Leyda’s A Bronx Morning (1931). Overall 25 short films lovingly depict scenes of New Yorkers in situ against the skyscrapers, streets, and night life of Manhattan during a half century of progress.. 25 FILMS BY FEATURED DIRECTORS: Frederick Armitage, G.W. “Billy” Bitzer, Robert K. Bonine, Al Brick, Rudy Burckhardt, Robert Flaherty, Robert Florey, Lewis Jacobs, Looney Lens, Jay Leyda, Wallace McCutcheon, Edwin S. Porter, Bonney Powell, Charles Sheeler, J.B. Smith, Paul Strand, A.E. Weed, Herman Weinberg.. Curated by Bruce Posner and produced by David Shepard. “Manhattan itself becomes a living being, the embodiment of modern American energy. A New York museum should put this great early film, perhaps the most dramatic portrayal of the city in existence, on permanent display. Every New Yorker should see it.” - New York Magazine. “The clarity and depth of the films will be a revelation… Picturing a Metropolis is cause for celebration.” - Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians. Made possible in part by Cineric, Inc., Eastman Kodak Company, Film Preservation Associates

"The most fantastic effects were secured in shooting sheer heights…. It was partly the architectural wonder of New York that made the film so stirring, but, really, it was the artist’s touch that moved one, the catching of mood, line, color, and feeling in the strange, walled city." —Marguerite Tazelaar 1929. The hard-edged SKYSCRAPER SYMPHONY stands in contrast to other New York scenic newsreels produced throughout the 1920s. Robert Florey’s camera looks straight up the domineering concrete behemoths in skewed perspectives that attempt to emulate musical forms.. The hard-edged SKYSCRAPER SYMPHONY stands in contrast to other New York scenic newsreels produced during the 1920s. Composed of skewed perspectives, Robert Florey’s camera looks straight up the domineering concrete behemoths. And it is hard to determine if he succeeds to mime symphonic form as the title suggests.. French cinéaste, journalist, author and film and television director Robert Florey came to Hollywood in 1921 and worked as an assistant director before collaborating on The Life and Death of 9413 - A Hollywood Extra. He made at least three other short experimental films and directed over 50 Hollywood features during the 1930-40s. In 1953, he moved to television.. 35mm 1.33:1 black and white silent with music 20fps 11:17 minutes. New music by Donald Sosin; courtesy Gosfilmofond of Russia
