From Caligari to Hitler - German Cinema in the Age of Masses

The era that created a monster
A Psychological History of the German Film is a book by film critic and writer Siegfried Kracauer, published in 1947.
Using a montage of footage from the highest quality restorations, the film illustrates Siegfried Kracauer’s 1947 thesis that the rise of Nazism is anticipated in many themes found throughout Weimar cinema, while situating Kracauer in the philosophy and histories of the time.
