German Expressionism was the most important artistic movement of the 1920's. Initially an art movement that emphasized the artist's inner feelings or ideas over replicating reality, and was characterized by simplified shapes, bright colors and gestural marks or brushstrokes. This movement applied its asthetics to cinema and gave us some of the greatest motion pictures to emerge from Europe, films whose sense of style has yet to be replicated in these days of computer generated images. Come and find out just how expressionism started and worked its way into motion pictures. Find out the behind the scenes stories to such classics as The Golem (1920) Nosferatu (1922) Metropolis (1926) and so many more. Learn about the directors such as Fritz LangeF.W. MurnauPaul Wegener and many more. And last but far from least, find out how German expressionism directly affected the films of the United States, from the horror films of the 1930's to the Film Noir of the 1940's. A lecture by Keith Crocker.
