Screened on August 15, 2012
This week, our film is based upon a classic German tale; famously adapted in literature by Goethe, but the subject of probably thousands of adaptations and retellings. Murnau, who earlier had created the vampire silent Nosferatu, made this film in 1926, before moving to Hollywood to make Sunrise.
You can watch this film from the sidewalk in front of 15 East Pender Street between 7 and 11 nightly (it is almost two hours long, so we’re starting it before sunset to allow it to run twice).
Or, you can watch it here:
