Der müde Tod (Destiny - 1921)
NR; 114 Minutes
Show Time 7:30pm
Directed by Fritz Lang
Silent with Live Musical Accompaniment by Mike Schiffer
Starring Lil Dagover, Walter Janssen and Bernhard Goetzke, this dark fairy tale tells the story of a young woman’s bargain with the Angel of Death after he slays her lover. Death agrees to revive him if she can save at least one of three lives in peril in three different settings: medieval Persia, Renaissance Venice, and imperial China. The film influenced a succeeding generation of filmmakers, including Luis Buñuel, who said in his autobiography, “When I saw DESTINY, I suddenly knew that I wanted to make movies,” and Alfred Hitchcock, who cited it as a film that deeply impressed him as a young man.
