Mit dem Motorrad über die Wolken, 1926, Lothar Rübelt

Filmmuseum on location:

"Mit dem Motorrad über die Wolken"

June 24 and 25, 2021

Filmarchiv Austria and the Austrian Film Museum collaboratively worked on the restoration of Mit dem Motorrad über die Wolken (Lothar Rübelt, 1926, Austria), a film that captures an adventurous motorcycle ride from Vienna to the Dolomites. The daring filmmaker and his companions embark on a journey off the beaten track, in search of mountain peaks and stunning views. The restoration is based on elements preserved in the archives of both institutions and includes an elaborate reconstruction and digital recreation of the original tinting and toning.

On June 24, we will have the great pleasure of presenting the restoration at the open air cinema in the Augarten.

On June 25, the screening will be screened once more at METRO Kinokulturhaus.
