"A breathtaking display of cinematic virtuosity ...  raises cinema to the heights of philosophical speculation ... one of the masterworks of the art form." -New Yorker
A local, happily married farmer falls hard for a big-city seductress, risks everything ... and then realizes the depth of his love for his wife. Winner of the first Oscars for Actress and Cinematography, this film by German émigré F.W. Murnau-perhaps the greatest practitioner of the cinematic expressionism-remains a touching, visionary and surprisingly modern feat of filmmaking. (U.S., 1928, 110m, 35mm, Criterion)


ABOUT THE SERIES:
Great movies are works of visual poetry. As with other forms of poetry, our understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment of movies can be deepened and enhanced by learning how to see (and read) them better. The St. John's College Film Institute is dedicated to cultivating the skills necessary to become better readers of great movies, and provides these public screenings-each in the best screening format available-to celebrate the work of eight of cinema's essential artists.
