Running time: 12'

Production: GER 1930, 12‘

11-minute “film audio play” which is a real symphony of sound. During one night Ruttmann recorded the sounds of the street, presenting everyday life in Berlin in this (rather humorous) way. This resulted in an extreme film experiment: a film with no picture, where everything happens in the world of sound. The “found” sounds of the city, such as church bells, the noise of the street, or fragments of random conversations make up an organic unity, evoking semantic-acoustic associations in the audience. “Weekend” is a pioneer achievement of the art of sound.
