Beyond the Street (German:Jenseits der Straße) is a 1929 German silent drama film directed by Leo Mittler and starring Lissy Arna, Paul Rehkopf and Fritz Genschow. The film is in the Weimar tradition of Street films, which examined the lower-depths of society. It has become the film for which Mittler is best known, even though he had only been appointed to make it after another director had to withdraw.[1] The film was produced by the left-wing Prometheus Film, a German subsidiary of the Soviet company Mezhrabpom-Film. It is also known by the alternative title Harbor Drift.
