Starring: Emil Jannings, Maly Delschaft, Max Hiller

With live, improvised piano accompaniment from Costas Fotopoulos.

Introduced by Pamela Hutchinson; Editor of Silent London and Features Production Editor for The Guardian.

The story of an aging doorman who after being fired from his prestigious job at a luxurious hotel, is forced to face the scorn of his friends, neighbours and society.

A film completely absent of dialogue and inter-titles, the story is told entirely through the language of the camera and physical expression. This screening is part of Mimetic Festival 2013; a festival of the very best emerging mime, puppetry and cabaret in the UK.
