Berlin im Licht: Stories from the Golden Twenties

Accompanied by historical film footage and the music of Kurt Weill, actress Dagmar Manzel tells the story of Berlin in the 1920s: a city that was characterised in equal measure by cultural splendour and economic misery, political instability and joie de vivre, light music and cutting-edge art. Berlin im Licht is the title of a festival that in 1928 turned night into day in the capital. Weill and Bertolt Brecht wrote the catchy tune of the same name.
