Film Screening: Summer in the City (1969)

German writer Uwe Johnson lived on Manhattan’s Upper West Side for several years in the 1960s. While working as a textbook editor for German-language school book Publishing house he tended to his own writing and urban exploration in his spare time. In 1968 German public television agreed to coproduce a film in which Johnson would introduce and question the various characters with whom he exchanges news and opinions on his wanderings around the Upper West Side. As an introvert he was not interested in appearing in the film, but was willing to make a list of places and situations that he felt should be featured. Director Christian Blackwood took charge of the project and Johnson wrote the narration once the film was edited.
