Recently, Kelly Hughes of Aqua Books uncovered a 16mm film about Winnipeg titled Winnipeg: Symphony of a City. At this point, the author and content of the film are unknown, however, I assume from the title that it is a city symphony. It can be deduced from the canister that this print came from the mayor’s office and was made in 1971. This film will be shown with Walter Ruttmann’s seminal 1927 film Berlin: Symphony of a Metropolis, a film that attempts to simulate the passage of a typical day in 1920s Berlin.
