The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920, Germany, Robert Wiene, 72 minutes, b&w, DVD), will be screened at the Wolfsonian-FIU on August 13th, 2010. In this silent 1920s masterpiece, an insane asylum inmate explains to his psychiatrist how he came to the institution, telling the shrink the story of the evil hypnotist Caligari and his unwitting pawn, the sleepwalker Cesare. This stark expressionist film from German director Robert Wiene astonishes with the power of its sets and visuals, and the creepy plot easily raises hackles on the back of one’s neck.
This screening is free and open to the public.
