Film Mini Series: German Expressionism – Silent Horror is a free film program which coincides with the recently opened The Mad Square: Modernity in German Art 1910–37 exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria.

The film screenings will be held on selected Saturday afternoons at the National Gallery of Victoria.

On Saturday 10th of December, the Fritz Lang classic Metropolis will screen at 2:00pm. This silent black and white science fiction film was and continues to be highly influential, particularly for its visionary special effects. The classic music video for Queen's 'Radio Ga Ga', which was directed by David Mallet, features scenes from the 1927 feature film.



On Saturday 17th of December, the 1929 classic Pandora's Box will screen at 2.00pm. Directed by Georg Wilhelm Pabst and starring Louise Brooks, this silent black and white melodrama is a classic example of Weimar cinema.



On Saturday 14th of January, The Cabinet of Dr Caligari will screen at 2.00pm. This silent black and white horror film, directed by Robert Wiene, is a classic example of German Expressionism.



On Saturday 21st of January, Nosferatu will screen at 2.00pm. This silent black and white horror film, directed F. W. Murnau, stars Max Schreck as the vampire Count Orlok. It is an unauthorised adaptation on Bram Stoker's Dracula.
