Event description
Come see this iconic German Expressionist silent horror film presented with live music accompaniment by the VOC Silent Film Harmonic.

About this Event

The most brilliant example of that dark and twisted film movement known as German Expressionism, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari is a plunge into the mind of insanity that severs all ties with the rational world. Director Robert Wiene and a team of designers crafted a nightmare realm in which light, shadow and substance are abstracted, a world in which a demented doctor (Caligari) and a carnival sleepwalker (Cesare) perpetrate a series of ghastly murders in a small community. Featuring a thrilling performance by the incomparable, Conrad Veidt (best known as Major Heinrich Strasser in Casablanca), as Cesare. “[W]hat matters is to create states of anxiety and terror... In Caligari, the Expressionist treatment was unusually successful." Lotte Eisner, The Haunted Screen.
