Years before they became major players in Hollywood, a group of young German filmmakers—including eventual noir masters Robert Siodmak and Edgar G. Ulmer and future Oscar winners Billy Wilder and Fred Zinnemann—worked together on the once-in-a-lifetime collaboration People on Sunday (Menschen am Sonntag). This effervescent, sunlit silent, about a handful of city dwellers (a charming cast of nonprofessionals) enjoying a weekend outing, offers a rare glimpse of Weimar-era Berlin. A unique hybrid of documentary and fictional storytelling, PEOPLE ON SUNDAY was both an experiment and a mainstream hit that would influence generations of film artists around the world. Presented with a live score from Kelvin Walters. Kelvin Walters is a brilliant saxophonist, composer and band leader, originally from Memphis, TN and currently studying music at The Juilliard School in New York City.

The Crosstown Arthouse Film Series showcases a diverse collection of independent, international, historically significant, artistic, experimental, cult, underground and documentary features.
