11/14 - LOOP Presents: Cheap Thrills!
In its earliest days of German cinema, the cinematograph was perceived as a novelty trend for upper class audiences. Soon, trivial short films were being shown as fairground attractions aimed at the working and lower-middle class. The booths in which these films were shown were known in Germany somewhat disparagingly as “Kintopps”.
Later, German expressionists were known as innovators for their creative usage of Mise-en-scene and camera movement. Animators and directors of experimental film such as Lotte Reiniger, Svend Noldan and the lesser known works of John Hagenbeck were also very active in Germany in the 1920s.
This edition of Cheap Thrills! features very rare German home movies, early animated films, Bergfilm landscape shorts, and the dazzling documentary “Fahrt ins Land der Wunder und Wolken” by German aviator, aerial explorer, author, and filmmaker: Gunther Plüschow and much more!
