Featurette

Check out this very rare and special featurette about Funeral in Berlin.

I found this very rare featurette about Funeral in Berlin, called 'Man At The Wall'. The original 16 mm film was in very bad shape, so the whole transfer is a bit red. The first seconds of the featurette can't be heard or are a bit shaky, but nevertheless it is a very, very interesting 'making of ' documentary of Funeral in Berlin, never seen before as far as I know. It is not mentioned in any of the official pressbooks.

Enjoy this digital transfer, it is 5.48 minutes long.

But...with the help of www.filmcollectief.nl you can enjoy a completely remastered version. They are specialised in '16 mm to dvd' transfers and they managed to restore the beginning and they have filtered out the red colour. For purists I left the original version on this page.
