In the 1920’s, this now nearly forgotten neighborhood was once Berlin’s cultural hotspot, named “Little Hollywood”, as artists like Fritz Lang and Marlene Dietrich were making the films that established German Cinema as an international artistic movement.
The program includes an exhibition, a silent film screening, live music, and “Absinth Aperitiv Soiree”, a specially crafted cabaret evening as a hommage to 1920’s Berlin!
19:30 – 20:00 EXHIBITION / BOOK PRESENTATION: HERRRRREINSPAZIERT
This exhibition looks at four chapters in the history of the film location Weissensee between 1913 and 1929 as well as the beginnings of cinematography and focuses on film productions of the expressionist movement, as well as epic films including “THE CABINET OF DR CALIGARI (1919/20),” THE SPIDER ” (1919) and “THE INDIAN TOMB” (1921).
