SUNRISE: A SONG OF TWO HUMANS

Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans is an amazing work of art produced in 1927 that still stands up 86 years later. It has a compelling storyline and it uses innovative special effects and great cinematography for that time that holds your attention throughout the film.

It won an Academy Award for Unique and Artistic Production at the first Academy Awards in 1929. This was the first and only time this award was given.

Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans, considered by many to be the best silent film ever made has been called the Citizen Kane of the silent era. This film, directed by F.W. Murnau of Germany, and starring Janet Gaynor and George O’Brien is a must see for anyone that truly loves and appreciates great film.

    Had a great time - brunch on the patio with nice people and an enjoyable silent film classic. Looking forward to the next brunch.

    P.S. More bacon, less sausages!

    What an interesting movie that was! Certainly not typical of its era. Had a great time. Thanks again, Alex!

    My apologies for not attending today. Sunrise is one of my favourite films. Have had to deal with family medical issues in the past few days and was with my son this morning. Just got home and realized that Sunrise was today. :(

    I have severe allergies, and I cannot stop sneezing, and my eyes are watering. So I decided that it’s better that I would not attend the event tomorrow
