'We will explore the dynamic story shared by German and U.S. cinema. In the 1920s, Hollywood lured German directors; in the 1930s, Hitler ensured that German-speaking creative talent left for Hollywood film. Weimar Cinema brought to the movies expressionism; animation; monsters like Nosferatu, and the film noir; science-fiction films like Metropolis, which influenced Blade Runner; movies promoting liberalized views of gender and sexuality; and social satires like Blue Angel echoed in Cabaret. Since the 1970s, German films have won Oscars, and currently George Clooney, Michael Douglas, Christoph Waltz, and John Woo are filming in Babelsberg-Berlin, the world's oldest surviving studio site.'
