Regen (1929)

English title: Rain



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. In Rain rain shower is edited to look like a single rainstorm, while The Bridge studies a Rotterdam drawbridge in a similar way.



The films are distributed through
