Live musical accompaniment by Coupler!
In 1925, German director Hanns Walter Kornblum set out to create a film that would summarize all available astronomical knowledge and a dreamy investigation of what wonders might await humanity at the advent of space travel. With help from 15 special effects technicians and 9 cameramen, the film is a technical marvel. The silent film will be joined by live musical accompaniment from the band Coupler.
Co-Sponsored by the Center for 21st Century Studies, the Program in Film Studies, the Departments of English and Art History, and UWM’s Year of the Humanities
