Wasser für Canitoga FILMFEST MÜNCHEN 2019 - 100 Jahre Bavaria
Filmmuseum, München (Details)
A pipeline to bring water to the Canadian town of Canitoga ought to have been finished long ago, but repeated acts of sabotage have made this impossible. This happens again in the spring of 1905, when an excessive use of explosives prevents construction work from continuing. Engineer Oliver Montstuart is able to track down the guilty party, but puts himself in danger by doing so. Even then, the problems don't end, as behind the scenes, someone is still pulling the strings and is prepared to prevent construction at any price. This newly restored adventure film from 1939 was one of the most expensive films made during the National Socialist era, its action-packed story told in international style. The Murnau Stiftung recently restored this cinema classic. The restoration process will be briefly explained prior to the screening.
Regie: Herbert Selpin
