The Cabinet of Dr Caligari with Live Organ Accompaniment
Arguably one of the greatest works of German Expressionist cinema, The Cabinet of Dr Caligari gets a rare screening at this year’s festival with live organ accompaniment. Considered by some as the first true horror film this is a stunning example of cinematic artistry, the dark and twisted visual style perfectly reflecting the nightmarish emotional states of the characters. After a series of mysterious murders have taken place in a small town Francis suspects it is the visiting hypnotist and his somnambulist, who can seemingly predict people’s deaths. But things might not be as they seem! Prepare to be drawn into a sinister world of intrigue, murder and madness.
Presented in association with Leeds International Film Festival.View
