Viking Eggeling

Today is the anniversary of the death in 1925 of film maker Viking Eggeling. There is more information here.

Symphonie Diagonale (1924):

ubuweb says, in part,
In Diagonal Symphony, the emphasis is on objectively analyzed movement rather than expressiveness on the surface patterning of lines into clearly defined movements, controlled by a mechanical, almost metronomic tempo. ... Above all, a sober quality of rhythm articulation remains the most pronounced quality of the film.
