Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans
New 35mm print! F.W. Murnau, 1927
Tue, Feb 22, 2011 7 PM
The first film German expressionist director F. W. Murnau made in Hollywood, Sunrise is widely considered to be the pinnacle of silent-era filmmaking.

Murnau used almost no titles cards and employed synch sound for music and effects only, relying almost exclusively on his atmospheric visuals to tell the deceptively simple story of a tempted married man and his devoted wife. (110 mins., 35mm)
