Rennsymphonie – Race Symphony
DE 1929

In Hans Richter’s silent classic, the horses on the racetrack are not the only attraction; there are also the onlookers. Nevertheless, these short animal portraits number among the most beautiful images of horses in the films from the twenties. In the process, the humans in the audience fall somewhat by the wayside, although they get more camera time.
