Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires

This film is the most unknown treasure of Weimar filmmaking: Marie Harder was the only female director of the years before 1933 (and Nazi heroine Leni Riefenstahl.) She was a Social-democrat party-member, working in film education. This is her only film as a director: she died in Mexican exile doing research for a new project. We do not know much more about her, just what we can trace in this movie. Accountant Kremke is close to famous examples of workers’ cinema of that time like Brecht’s Kuhle Wampe... and Mutter Krauses Fahrt ins Glück: showing lower classes, city life and working conditions. But the style is much more modern, influenced by Ruttmann. Story shows automatization and political conflict within a family.
