Berlin Alexanderplatz Remastered

Series Site

"This is a reprise presentation of MoMA’s restored 35mm print of Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s Berlin Alexanderplatz … Produced for German television in 1980, the film was released theatrically in New York in 1983. Based on Alfred Döblin’s epic novel about the declining days of the Weimar Republic, Berlin Alexanderplatz traces the fall of Franz Biberkopf, an urban Everyman, as he slogs through a debased society compromised by unemployment, violence, anomie, and promises of social order proclaimed by contradictory political parties." —MoMA
