Körkarlen (1921, Sweden) by Victor Sjöström (106')
Presentation: Marta Sanz
Inspired by a novel by Selma Lagerlöff written in 1912, which is based on the superstitious belief that he who dies at midnight on New Year’s Eve will become Death’s coachman. It tells the story of an alcoholic, out-of-work labourer who dies at that very moment in a cemetery.
On Saturday, the video of the presentation recorded the day before will be shown.
