“In the Legendary Republic of Utopia…”

Satirical films that end up predicting a future that they once joked about are becoming more common these days. But such satire doesn’t begin with Idiocracy or Network. Let’s go back nearly 100 years ago to an Austrian film whose title pretty much says it all: The City Without Jews

Found in a Parisian flea market several years ago, this once thought lost silent film is based on the satirical book of the same name by Austrian writer Hugo Bettauer. The restored Bluray (Trailer) was just released, but if you don’t have the coin you can view a more rough around the edges cut available on YouTube.
