the cabinet of dr. caligari

Robert Wiene (DE. 1920)

Director: Robert Wiene.
Duration: 84ʼ


A silent movie with a newly composed surround soundtrack by Edison Studio
Time: 21.00

The composition of the electroacoustic soundtrack was commissioned by the International Computer Music Conference (Singapore 2003). A masterpiece of expressionist cinema and the first cult-movie in cinema history, The Cabinet of Dr Caligari takes its inspiration from the most advanced experimental work carried out at the beginning of the last century in literature and art. Wieneʼs film is filled with surprising historical premonitions and the expressionist sets sum up perfectly the sense of urban alienation in a very unnerving way.
