Film - Animated | December 9 | 2-3:15 p.m. | Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive
Shakespeares romantic fantasia meets its imaginative match in Trnkas bejeweled stop-motion adaptation. Here, the filmmaker trades in his traditional wood sculptures to work with a smooth, pale plastic material that adds just the right level of otherworldly, delicate beauty.

Film - Feature | December 9 | 4:30-5:40 p.m. | Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive
The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, released in 1920, probably remains the ultimate expression of narrative through set design; even the exquisitely chiseled face of Conrad Veidt seems cut to reflect the angled shadows and interiors through which he somnambulistically slips, under the control of the evil Caligari. The films tableau-like backgrounds emerged from the Sturm expressionist group, which... More >
