The City without Jews: A Special Film Concert

A series of films devoted to “Vienna Unveiled” opens with two instances of interwar Jewish theme films: Hans Karl Breslauer’s discomfiting (and prophetic) science fiction satire The City without Jews (1924) and Sammy Scratches Himself (1919), a two-reel farce produced by the largely Jewish cabaret group the Budapest Orpheum Society. Both will be accompanied by new original scores performed by composer Dorit Chrysler.

Tickets are free with admission to the museum. For more information, see MoMA’s website.
