City Symphony

see all genres ›

Avant-gardists of the early 20th century were unabashedly in love with progress, modernity, urban life and found that newfangled medium of film to be a perfect vehicle to express their poetical (but not uncritical) rapture over the "new." While the most famous "city symphony" movies were made in the 1920s and '30s, it's an experimental genre that still surfaces in various forms today.
