Peter Vermeersch and FLAT EARTH SOCIETY 100-year anniversary of Die Austernprinzessin (The Oyster Princess) (1919, Ernst Lubitsch)

Peter Vermeersch and FLAT EARTH SOCIETY: 100-year anniversary of The Oyster Princess 

“Twisting rapidly from theatrical bombast to tenderness, collective improv, mad movie-chase music and back to swinging anthems.” The Guardian 

In 2019, Flat Earth Society celebrates its 20-year jubilee and the 100th anniversary of Ernst Lubitsch’s landmark 1919 film The Oyster Princess (Die Austernprinzessin). After almost 14 years and many international screenings, including in New York, Ottawa, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Mexico City, FES will perform its most successful production in a special U.S. engagement at REDCAT. For this reprise, they work with the version of the film restored by the F.W. Murnau Foundation; the image quality of this version is truly exceptional.
