New Radical Visions Event: Seven Journeys

From: John
Sent on: Tuesday, August 28, 2007 3:15 AM

What: Seven Journeys (In jenen Tagen; Germany, 1947)

When: Tuesday, September 4. Film starts at 7.

Where: Goethe Institute (530 Bush at Grant).

On Tuesday September 4 our group will visit San Francisco's Goethe Institute to see Seven Journeys (In Jenen Tagen), a 1947 film by Helmut K?utner that reflects on the director's experience of Nazi Germany.

"Berlin lies in ruins. Two mechanics are dismantling an old automobile. SEVEN JOURNEYS, one of the first 'Tr?mmerfilme' illustrates in seven episodes the car's history and thereby, Germany's own history. The first episode is set on January 30, 1933, the day when the car was registered and the day Hitler came to power. In the last episode the camera pans across the ruins of Berlin, the war is over but still very present. A car drives us through the history of the 'Thousand Year Reich', only one of K?utner's many brilliant ideas in this film. And the only prop used is a car that drives through the streets telling us about the people who live there, who needed the car to escape or see a lover--simple people, not those who make history, but those who suffered and had to endure it." Co-presented by the SF Jewish Film Festival
