The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari with live soundtrack by VOC Silent Film Harmonic

Oct. 30, 7:30. Come see this iconic German Expressionist silent horror film --routinely cited as one of the greatest films ever made-- presented with live music accompaniment by the VOC Silent Film Harmonic, from Kitchener-Waterloo.

The most brilliant example of that dark and twisted film movement known as German Expressionism, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari is a plunge into the mind of insanity that severs all ties with the rational world. Director Robert Wiene and a team of designers crafted a nightmare realm in which light, shadow and substance are abstracted, a world in which a demented doctor (Caligari) and a carnival sleepwalker (Cesare) perpetrate a series of ghastly murders in a small community. Featuring a thrilling performance by the incomparable, Conrad Veidt (best known as Major Heinrich Strasser in Casablanca), as Cesare. “[W]hat matters is to create states of anxiety and terror... In Caligari, the Expressionist treatment was unusually successful." - Lotte Eisner, The Haunted Screen.
