Prague 1934 #CitySymphonies

I was introduced to the concept of city symphonies a couple of years ago. This blogpost explains more.

“We Live in Prague” was filmed in 1934. Don’t be put off by the Keystone Cops style opening shots! The film includes some remarkable insights into the lives of ordinary people and some fascinating explorations of film techniques particularly night-time filming.

The film-makers are Joachim Barenz, Elke Kellermann and Jochen Wolf.
