"A film without actors," People on Sunday is a unique experiment in observational discovery shot in the areas around Berlin in summer 1929. A pioneering work of location shooting and improvisational performance, the film provides a multifaceted portrait of Weimar society at its most relaxed. Many of the filmmakers who collaborated on the film - including directors Robert Siodmak and Edgar G. Ulmer, screenwriter Billy Wilder, and cinematography assistant Fred Zinnemann - would go into exile in Hollywood a few years later. Presented in a new restoration from the Deutsche Kinemathek. Subtitles available.
