Description

The Oyster Princess, 100 years

'The Oyster Princess' (1919) marks a turning point in director Ernst Lubitsch’ comedy work. He leaves the slapstick behind and evolves toward a sophisticated form of satire. The target of his humour in this case is the American bourgeoisie, personified by the wealthy businessman ‘the Oyster King'. The film was beautifully restored by the Murnau Foundation. Live FES concert accompanying the movie.

S.S. Belgenland

From 1924 to 1931 the S.S. Belgenland departed seven times for a wintry world cruise of 133 days. However, the ship was originally built for the transportation of emigrants. When in 1923  the transportation of emigrants across the Atlantic Ocean collapsed due to US quota, the Red Star Line ventured into the tourism market and refurbished the ship into a luxury cruiser. Original film footage made by the Olsen family on their World Cruise with the SS Belgenland in 1927-1928. Film & music composed by Peter Vermeersch, commissioned by the Red Star Line Museum Antwerp.
