'Menschen am Sonntag' (People on Sunday), 1930

Film screening
September 6

In this semi-documentary film, the actors play themselves during a lazy weekend and a Sunday trip to Lake Wannsee. There is picnicking, swimming and making love.

The film is a famous example of the New Objectivity (in German: Neue Sachlichkeit), a movement in the arts that strived for public collaboration, engagement, and rejection of romantic idealism by showing ordinary people and ordinary life.

Directed by Robert Siodmak and Edgar Georg Ulmer.

This screening is organised as part of the exhibition Charlotte Salomon in close-up, which can be seen in the Jewish Museum until September 29.
