About this event

House Of Yes & Wordless Music invites you to a special Halloween film screening with live score of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, a 1920 silent horror film that shocked the postwar masses and catapulted the movement known as German Expressionism into film history. Considered by many to be the first true horror film, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari not only holds that title but exists as the quintessential definitive piece of German expressionist cinema. Its visual style is the pinnacle of the genre, with its crooked backdrops, harsh lines, painted shadows, and surreal nature permeating every scene. Distortions and mangled perspectives are constant, as lines and structures twist and strike to form nightmarish shapes. It’s horror shot within the bosom of an artistic combination that brings to mind Edvard Munch, MC Escher and Picasso, but lives on as definitively Caligari. After nearly 100 years, its twisted and bizarre visual style is unmatched, positioning the film as a staple in film history studies and examinations of early cinematic pioneers.

This special film screening of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari is rescored by composer Ricardo Romaneiro featuring an immersive sound design by Leo Leite performed by String Noise - Pauline Kim Harris (violin), Conrad Harris (violin), Hannah Sumner (singer), Jacqui Kerrod (harp), Narek Arutyunian (clarinet), Justin Abrams (cello) and Ramin Abrams (bass).
