Chicago - Silent film with live music
WDR Funkhausorchester conducted by Frank Strobel - Funkhaus Wallrafplatz

Program Info:
In the middle of the urban canyons of Chicago: The cars race close to the skyscrapers, through the window of the elevated train the eye looks into ever new abysses of the street. The 1931 silent film " Weltstadt in Flegeljahren " shows the writer Heinrich Hauser's fascination for American progressiveness. The carefully composed images have been preserved, but the sounds of time have been lost. The WDR Funkhausorchester has had new, jazz and entertaining music written to match the film poem and is presenting it at the closing event of lit. COLOGNE live to the original prints.
