There is a ball today
dir. 1932, 0 h 7 min
A short impression, one of the pre-war avant-garde films.
The annual Young Architecture Ball is fast approaching. The press announced that guests will entertain to the music of six orchestras in twenty-three decorated rooms of the Architecture Department on Koszykowa 55 in Warsaw, and all will be recorded on camera. The filmic impression is a nonliteral depiction of ball preparations, phone conversations with invited individuals, guests arriving at the venue and all-night partying.
Many visual effects were achieved with photographic deformation, editing tricks and expressive play of light.
