The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari
Considered the first horror film and a quintessential work of German Expressionist cinema, the tale of Dr Caligari is told in flashback. While sitting on a bench, Francis tells a stranger the fantastic tale of Dr Caligari, mad scientist and hypnotist who uses a somnambulist (Conrad Veidt) for evil purposes. Is it true? Or just the ravings of a madman?
Also shown will be Weine’s 1920 follow-up to Dr Caligari, Genuine: A Tale of a Vampire. Genuine is not a vampire in the modern sense, but a vamp or succubus who appears to men in their dreams and uses her powers of seduction to torment and control the men who love her.
‘Sunday Silents’ is made possible by the generous support of: Jim DeMaio State Farm Insurance Agent, New Paltz
