People on Sunday and Múm
“People on Sunday” which will be screened to the accompaniment of Icelandic electronic and experimental pop band Múm’s live performance, is the story of how ordinary people celebrate life on an ordinary Sunday in late 1920’s Berlin. Preceding the Great Depression and shot in summer of 1929 before the Nazi Rule tarnished the daily life, the film is about five teenagers crossing paths on a Sunday and their journey to the countryside. While their joy is betimes eclipsed by momentary outbursts, tantrums or fits of jealousy, these too dissipate rapidly not unlike the clouds above them while wisely reminding the audience to treasure the ‘the moment”.
Co-directed by Robert Siodmak and Edgar G. Ulmer in the early stages of their career before their phenomenal achievements in Hollywood, and with Oscar-winning director Billy Wilder's contribution to the screenplay, "People on Sunday” is a unique experiment in juxtaposition of documentary and narrative film, as well as of the anonymous and the personal. Shot with non-actors on a shoestring budget and attained unexpected success upon its release in 1930, the film can be considered a hybrid of Dziga Vertov’s “Man with the Movie Camera” and Walter Ruttmann’s “Berlin: Symphony of a Great City”.
“People on Sunday” is a film that Berliners visually know by heart and identify with, and it is invaluable to witness a long-gone Berlin not yet destroyed by the Nazis.
Múm is pronounced “miooyyuujm” but called mum in short. The band was founded in 1997 by experimental musicians Gunnar Örn Tynes and Örvar Þóreyjarson Smárason, along with twin sisters Gyða and Kristín Anna Valtýsdóttir who had classical backgrounds. Following a series of singles and remixes, they released their debut album “Yesterday Was Dramatic - Today Is OK” in 2000 from the well-known English record label Fat Cat. Their success continued with “Finally We Are No One” (2002) and “Summer Make Good” (2004). After Gyða and Kristín’s departures in 2002 and 2006 respectively, Gunnar and Örvar soldiered on together and released the albums “Go Go Smear The Poison Ivy” in 2007 and “Sing Along to Songs You Don't Know” in 2009. The band released their song “Whistle”, a surprise collaboration with Kylie Minogue, on SoundCloud in 2013, the year which also saw them release their sixth album “Smilewound”. Reappearing with the 20th anniversary edition of their debut album in 2019, Múm is also known for their live performances that they perform for films.
