Assumed to be lost for decades, this 1924 film was rediscovered in a Paris flea market in 2015. Eerily prescient about the Holocaust, the film was adapted from a satirical novel and begins with the election of an anti-Semitic chancellor who exiles all his city’s Jews. While the chancellor’s daughter is devastated to see her Jewish boyfriend go, most of the city enthusiastically supports the new law. But, with the Jews gone, the city’s economy declines, inflation becomes rampant, and cultural life disappears. The government must decide—save the city or stand by its anti-Semitic legislation?

With live musical accompaniment by Jeff Rapsis, composer and performer of live musical scores for silent film screenings. Followed by a conversation.
