24-03-2019 12:00:00 24-03-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York The Steel Beast | 3:00 pm This daring collage of rhythms, abstractions, superimpositions, and wild shots of the railroad and other machines, made by the great German photographer Zielke, was originally commissioned to celebrate the centennial of the Nuremburg-Furth railroad line, and later banned by the Third Reich for "decadent aesthetics." French film critic Jean Mitry made this film poem to honor the largest French steam locomotive, the Pacific. The montage of speeding wheels, pistons and gears; the parallel lines of rails and wires; a stoker furiously shoveling coal in concert with the score – together these elements visually and musically describe the exhilaration of the train's motion. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=350302 Anthology Film Archives Anthology Film Archives
