Celebrate Halloween with one of the earliest and surely creepiest horror films in cinema history, accompanied with live music by tricked-out ghouls under the direction of Brian LeBarton, best known as Beck’s prodigious music director. The 1920 touchstone of Expressionism tells the Eastern European Jewish legend of the Golem—an oversize clay statue brought to life by a Prague rabbi to do muscle work and help protect the city’s Jews. It doesn’t take long, though, before the plan goes horribly wrong… With director Paul Wegener as the Golem, cinematography by Karl Freund (Metropolis) and amazing sets by architect Hans Poelzig. LeBarton’s costumed band, meanwhile, features analog keyboards, electronic treatments, cello, and special guest Carla Azar on drums and percussion.
Funded in part with generous support from Wendy Keys and Donald Pels.
