In a futuristic time and place, humans are divided into two groups: the thinkers, who make plans, and the workers, who achieve goals.

Metropolis by Fritz Lang( Visual )

16 editions published between 1926 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is not a reconstruction but a new version of Fritz Lang's classic. Moroder went back to the original intertitles using the explanatory ones as narration and turning the others into dialogue printed as subtitles. Production stills are used as establishing shots and linking devices to produce a sense of coherent narrative logic probably more precise than was contained even in the original complete Metropolis screened at the Berlin premiere

Wunder der Schöpfung by Hanns Walter Kornblum( Visual )

7 editions published between 1925 and 2009 in German and Undetermined and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wunder der Schopfung, also known as Our heavenly bodies, is an extraordinary, fascinating "Kulturfilm" about the world and the universe as known during the 1920s. 15 special effects experts and nine cameramen were involved in the production of this film which combines documentary scenes, historical documents, fiction elements, animation scenes and educational impact. It is beautifully colored, using tinting and toning in a very elaborate way. Some visual ideas in the sequences with a space shuttle visiting different planets in the universe seem to have been the inspiration for Stanley Kubrick's 2001: a space odyssey

Fritz Lang : the silent films( Visual )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Nibelungen: Originally released as two separate features, Siegfried and Kriemhild's revenge. Siegfried establishes larger-than-life heroic characters who are defined by tests of valor and rigid codes of honor. In order to win the hand of Kriemhild, Siegfried must win a bride for her brother, King Gunther. Kriemhild's Revenge begins after the death of Siegfried, and weaves the treacherous tale of his widow's ungodly vengeance upon his murderers. The noble qualities of the first film become liabilities in the second, as the blood oaths and vows of loyalty bring about a maelstrom of violence that results in the slaughter of entire armies. 2011 restoration
