"In the summer of 1927, Fischinger walked from Munich to Berlin carrying his camera and equipment in a back-pack. Along the way, he took single-frame images of certain people and landscapes he encountered. The resultant film survives in a single consistent 100 meter negative copy, of which the last fourth had been cut off by Fischinger himself and placed in one of the cans designated as first priority for transfer to safety film. Fortunately the cut was in the middle of a cluster of similar frames, so I was able to recognize and rejoin the two pieces, and transfer them to a 16mm safety negative." - Dr. William Moritz, Film Culture
