De Brug (1927)

English title: The Bridge



Directed and written by Joris Ivens (1898-1989)


Not technically a City Symphony, more of a city poem, but drawing on the same mode of rendition of the city. Through abstraction of the city itself, its pace and character is shown. The Bridge studies a Rotterdam drawbridge in a similar way.
