Film historian Eric Grayson describes the 1919 silent movie as “a German expressionist nightmare.” This version, according to Grayson, is not a video but a rare archival print.
A sleepwalker (Conrad Veidt) is controlled by a mysterious doctor (Werner Krauss) in Holstenwall. The location is represented by bizarre painted sets, and twisted architecture come to life.
The original German art titles will be translated and accompanied by a live score by pianist Roger Lippincott.
Admission $5; concessions are $1. Info: www.gpacarts.org.
