SUNRISE: A SONG OF TWO HUMANS
1927, 20th Century Fox, 95 min, USA, Dir: F.W. Murnau

Director F.W. Murnau’s first American film stars George O’Brien and Janet Gaynor as a farmer and his loving wife, whose marriage is rocked by the appearance of an alluring "Woman From the City" (Margaret Livingston). An Academy Award winner for lead actress Gaynor, cinematography, and for "artistic quality of production."


NOSFERATU
NOSFERATU, EINE SYMPHONIE DES GRAUENS
1922, 94 min, Germany, Dir: F.W. Murnau

F.W. Murnau reinvents the story of Dracula as a silent German Expressionist fable and the result is one of the greatest horror films ever made. Max Schreck is astonishingly creepy as the vampire, and Murnau's frames ooze eerie atmosphere in this hugely influential tale.
