Life Begins Tomorrow (Hochbaum, 1933): BFI Southbank, NFT2, 6.25pm

This 35mm presentation, whihc is also being screened on June 18th, is part of the Weimar season at BFI Southbank. Full details here.

BFI Southbank introduction:
On his release from a Berlin prison, a young man embarks on an urban odyssey in search of his wife. His growing anxiety and overwhelming sensory impressions are evoked through a panoply of experimental techniques. Made shortly after the Nazi takeover, this is arguably the masterpiece of neglected director Werner Hochbaum; its creative energy is purest Weimar.

Here (and above) is an extract.
