Our Heavenly Bodies (Wunder der Schöpfung)
Hanns Walter Kornblum (Germany/1925/92 min)
In the context of Germany's Kulturfilm phenomenon, Our Heavenly Bodies was among the greatest achievements of the 1920's. An extraordinarily fascinating Kulturfilm, it attempts a comprehensive explanation of our understanding of the world and the universe in the 1920's.
To produce the film, fifteen special effects experts and nine cameramen worked together combining documentary footage, historical documents, fiction elements and animated scenes, with an end-goal of making an educational impact. This is a rarely seen gem from the early days of German cinema.
