Considered the first horror film and a quintessential work of German Expressionist cinema, the tale of Dr Caligari is told in flashback. While sitting on a bench, Francis tells a stranger the fantastic tale of Dr Caligari, mad scientist and hypnotist who uses a somnambulist (Conrad Veidt) for evil purposes. Is ist true? Or just the ravings of a madman?
Silent Film with live accompaniment by Marta Waterman.
