Night Falls on the Berlin of the Roaring Twenties

Watch the trailer for Robert Nippoldt’s tribute to the 1920s Berlin

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.
