Considered one of the best films of the silent era, Sunrise was the first American film by German Expressionist director F.W. Murnau. The story, about three people only identified as Man, Wife and Woman from the City (who bobs her hair, wears a black décolleté slip and smokes!), is about the man losing his mind to the vamp and then regaining it. Sunrise features the most innovative camerawork of the decade.

Introduced by Jim Sinclair, artistic director of The Cinematheque.
