Neue Galerie New York is delighted to present Filmbar, a movie series set in a relaxed bar atmosphere reminiscent of early 20th century Vienna. Tickets include one complimentary drink and snack, and a movie screening.
The Spring 2023 Filmbar Series, “Dancing on the Edge of a Volcano,” features a selection of films that form a multifaceted portrait of the Weimar Republic era. This was a time characterized by stark contrasts: hectic innovation while clinging to old traditions, suffering from the economic pressure of the Great Depression while getting lost in excess, living the ultimate freedom while facing the increasing danger of looming totalitarianism.
LEGENDARY SIN CITIES, BERLIN: METROPOLIS OF VICE
Directed by Marrin Canell and Ted Remerowski. 2005. 60 min.
During the Weimar Republic, Berlin was a cauldron of hedonism; uncensored and untiring, the city indulged in every form of sex. And just as Berlin was open-minded toward all things erotic, it was also tolerant toward avant-garde artistic expression, liberal political dialogue, and wide-ranging scientific inquiry. In tracing the sociopolitical history of the era, this program spotlights key figures of those heady times, including key figures such as Anita Berber, Bertolt Brecht, Marlene Dietrich, George Grosz, and Christopher Isherwood.
