Schatten (Shadows)

Schatten (Shadows, 1960, directed by Hansj├╝rgen Pohland) at Europa Film Treasures. "...Jazz music gives rhythm to the montage; black and white shots follow on from one another. We discover different aspects of the town: its architecture, its movement, its inhabitants. But we only catch sight of projected shadows! This exercise in style, realised in 1960, falls within the tradition of an avant-garde cinematographic genre, the urban symphony."
