Annie Schreyer gazes at photos of movie stars of the era……Menschen Am Sonntag (1929) aka “People On Sunday”
The film is subtitled “a film without actors” and was filmed over a  succession of Sundays in Berlin in the summer of 1929. The actors were amateurs  whose day jobs were those that they portrayed in the film. They  were part of a collective of young Berliners who wrote and produced the  film themselves, on a shoestring budget.
