Spend part of your Halloween morning watching The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari on vintage and horrifyingly fragile 16mm film. We’ll screen the film (see description below) and give a brief overview of what we are up to with the Media Center’s Vintage 16mm Film Collection: http://guides.lib.washington.edu/16mm_film
Considered by many to be “the first true horror film,” The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari) is a 1920 German silent horror film directed by Robert Wiene from a screenplay by Hans Janowitz and Carl Mayer. It is one of the most influential films of the German Expressionist movement, using stylized sets, with abstract, jagged buildings painted on canvas backdrops and flats. To add to this strange style, the actors used an unrealistic technique that exhibited “jerky” and dance-like movements. This film is cited as having introduced the twist ending in cinema.
Event details: Friday, October 31, 10:30 — 11:45 in Allen Auditorium
