The pre-sound era produced some of the most beautiful, arresting films ever made. In July, Meta House and DJs from the X-PAT SOUNDSYSTEM invite you to watch the best silent movies of all times, accompanied by a live mix of contemporary sounds and beats. Robert Wiene’s THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI (1920, 67 min) not only paved the way for the dark postwar heyday of film noir but also planted seeds of macabre surrealism that carries on today, notably in the chiaroscuro works of David Lynch. The mother lode of the horror genre, this German Expressionist movie presents a full smorgasbord of pop-eyed terror, lunatics, murderers and possessed somnambulists in its eerie shadows.
