Believed to have been lost until a copy was discovered in a Paris flea market in 2015, this silent gem
from 1924 was painstakingly restored by Austria’s national film archive. In the mythical republic of
Utopia things have gone sour. The economy is stagnant, the currency has become worthless, protests by
the hordes of unemployed workers are growing by the day. The ruling party turns to the usual scapegoat
for the nation’s s problems: The Jews. They are expelled but that does not solve the country’s problems. A movie that looks forward to events it could not have known would in fact take place.
ACCOMPANIED BY A LIVE PERFOMANCE by the San Francisco based Sascha Jacobsen String Quintet with its original score for the movie.
AN EVENT YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS.
7:15: Pre-show talk with Sascha Jacobsen, Film Composer.
7:45: Movie followed by the discussion.
