Das Kabinett des Dr. Caligari (1919, Germany), by Robert Wiene (74')
Presentation: Román Gubern
A mysterious doctor travels around different street fairs accompanied by his psychic Cesare, whom he orders to commit murder using his hypnotic power, although the mystery is later revealed in a mental hospital. With a bold and extravagant scenography and very heavy make-up, this was the first Expressionist film in German cinema, visually inspired by the revolution in painting and pre-war avant-garde scenographies.
On Saturday, the video of the presentation recorded the day before will be shown.
