DR. CALIGARI'S HEIRS. A HISTORY OF THE GERMAN HORROR FILM
Conference by Jürgen Heizmann (Université de Montréal)
The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, Nosferatu and other films influenced by German expressionism defined the style and the themes of a cinematographic genre.
But the history of the German horror film does not end in the silent film era, it continues in the post-war years, enduring until today. In an entertaining lecture full of thrills, we shall take a look at films like The Devil Strikes at Night, Tenderness of The Wolves, The Fan, Anatomy, and Nekromantik.
Not for the faint of heart! Costumes welcome!
Includes several film clips.
