STG Presents Trader Joe’s Silent Movie Mondays: The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920) at The Paramount Theatre on Monday, October 26, 2015.
Featuring live performance by the Wayne Horvitz Ensemble.
Considered the quintessential work of German Expressionist cinema, Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari tells the story of an insane hypnotist (Werner Krauss) who uses a somnambulist (Conrad Veidt) to commit murders. Written by Hans Janowitz and Carl Mayer with direction by Robert Wiene, this classic horror film features a dark and twisted visual style, with sharp-pointed forms, oblique and curving lines, structures and landscapes that lean and twist in unusual angles, and shadows and streaks of light painted directly onto the sets.
Join us after the film for CineClub, a community discussion in The Paramount Bar about the film, covering silent film trivia questions and exploring silent film in general. CineClub host is Jane K. Brown, Joff Hanauer Distinguished Professor for Western Civilization Emerita at the University of Washington. She is a former President tor the Goethe Society of North America and a leading expert on German cinema.
