Screening of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari
Performed Live by Puck Quartet
“Caligari creates a mindscape, a subjective psychological fantasy.” – Roger Ebert
Composer Stephen Prutsman exhibits “multistyled facility.” – The New York Times
Robert Wiene’s 1920 silent film is a quintessential example of German expressionist cinema. New York’s Puck Quartet accompanies the screening with Stephen Prutsman’s inventive score for string quartet, touching on styles of the period ranging from late romantic to cabaret to carnival.
