Sunrise (dir. F.W. Murnau, 1927)


Join us for the 3.50pm screening of this classic silent film, one of the Sight & Sound critics’ Top 10

“Sunrise was not Murnau’s last film, but it was perhaps his last truly great film. Ironically it was to mark a new chapter for Murnau, courted by the American studios and given carte blanche. Murnau’s foray into American cinema produced this haunting fable that blends German Expressionism with American naturalism. Set in a world free of geographic and social specifics, Murnau creates a dream of love, loss and redemption that is unique in cinema.” – BFI.
