Comprehensive German film history
This lavishly illustrated volume tells the story of German film through the collection of the Deutsche Kinemathek. From its beginnings in 1895 to the present day, it illustrates the artistic and technical, political, and social developments that have shaped and continue to shape, the history of film in Germany. Organized by decade and divided into twelve chapters, more than 420 essays explore films both famous and obscure. It celebrates this important cultural medium and its spectators as well as all the personalities who have shaped the diversity of German film through their creativity. More than 2,700 objects from all areas of the collection and spanning a period of around 130 years, many of them published for the first time, provide a comprehensive insight into the Kinemathek’s archive holdings and an in-depth understanding of film history.
