Released in 1922, Nosferatu is one of the most celebrated films in cinematic history. A century on, A Symphony of Horror, the subtitle of Murnau’s feature film, rings just as true. This unauthorised screen adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula still strikes fear into us today due to the interplay of light and the talent of the appropriately named actor Max Schreck (“Schreck” meaning “terror” in German). The founder of the Cinémathèque Française, Henri Langlois, described the production as “the ultimate in silent films”. This masterpiece of German expressionism will be screened to the sound of its original score by Hans Erdmann.
Cinema screening with live orchestra.
