LIVE MUSIC & FILM

Described as an 'almost perfect film' by Alfred Hitchcock, F. W. Murnau's celebrated German expressionist film is one of the glories of silent cinema. It is Carl May's story with a Brechtian stinger in its tail, about a proud hotel doorman who is demoted to lavatory attendant only to rise again. Karl Freund's camera-on-wheels glides, swings, and see-saws, recording Emil Jannings' classic performance.

This screening will feature a new lyrical score performed live by post-rock instrumental group hazards of swimming naked.
