KinoKonzert: Ashley Hribar & The Cabinet of Dr Caligari

05 Mar 2020 | GOMA | Cinema A

Considered a quintessential work of German Expressionist cinema, The Cabinet of Dr Caligari 1920 tells the story of a deranged hypnotist who uses a somnambulist to commit murders on his behalf.

Wiene’s film is widely recognized both as a precursor of psychological thriller films and a metaphor of the horror of tyrannical political power.

Celebrating the centenary of its release, The Cabinet of Dr Caligari will screen from a new 4K digital restoration. It will be accompanied by Australian pianist-composer, Ashley Hribar, who will perform a newly composed soundtrack alongside the film.
