  • In der Nacht

    1931. Germany. Directed by Walther Ruttmann. Featuring the music of Robert Schumann. 7 min.

  • Melody of the World

    1929. Germany. Directed by Walther Ruttmann. With Iwan Kowal Samborski, Renée Stobrawa, Grace Chiang, O. Idris. This “documentary” about the ocean liner Resolute’s around-the-world cruise may very well be Germany’s first sound film. Although he was not on the voyage himself, Ruttmann “organized” the visuals shot by his cameraman, adding ambient sounds and music to create a compelling visual and aural tour of the globe. Program courtesy of Filmmuseum Munich In German; English subtitles. 50 min.
