I’m re-visiting City Symphonies.

Today it’s Regen (Rain) filmed in 1929 by Dutch filmmaker Joris Ivens.

The film captures 1920’s Amsterdam before, during, and after a downpour.

The music is Hanns Eisler’s “14 Arten den Regen zu beschreiben”, (Fourteen Ways of Describing the Rain) added to the film in 1941

The film lasts for a little over twelve minutes and has some lovely umbrella shots in the middle.

Thanks for visiting my bog today.
