7:00 PM
SUNRISE
by F.W. Murnau
1927, 95 minutes, 35mm

Film Notes

Script by Carl Meyer based on the story “A Trip to Tilsit” by Herman Sudermann.


Photographed by Charles Rosher and Karl Strauss. With George O’Brien and Janet Gaynor.


Murnau’s first American film is an allegory set in no particular time or place, about a man who is temporarily overruled by his passions, inflamed by the power of evil as personified by the city woman, and who finally returns to his senses and the orderly family life of the country. It is a virtuoso exercise representing the expressiveness of the silent film as it neared its end.


Screening as part of the series ESSENTIAL CINEMA
