Watch the trailer for Robert Nippoldt’s tribute to the 1920s freewheeling capital
Watch the exclusive trailer for Robert Nippoldt’s Night Falls on the Berlin of the Roaring Twenties, a city tour that sets the clock back to another more swinging time.
From Marlene Dietrich lighting up a cigarette in top hat, tuxedo, and come-to-bed eyes, to the incomparable Josephine Baker in her banana skirt, from the bright lights and backstage whispers to looming factories and theoretical physics: discover the people, places, and ideas that embodied the fast-moving, rip-roaring capital.
This uniquely evocative book brings together Nippoldt’s illustrations, descriptive texts by Boris Pofalla, and a CD of rare original recordings in one vivid portrait of an effervescent metropolis in a transformative decade.
Available only in German in fall 2017, with translated editions to be published in spring 2018.
