This is Walter Ruttmann's classic 1927 film, Berlin: Die Sinfonie der Großstadt (also called Symphony of a Great City). It is one of the first films of its type, unrivaled in greatness until Koyaanisqatsi and Baraka. And your sound IS working - it's a silent film. There were several scores written for it later, but the original has no sound at all. I recommend you play some Philip Glass, ambient, or something minimalist if you want some noise to go with it.
