Expressionism in Cinema

Monday 1.30 - 3.30

German Expressionist cinema exerted a major influence on the development of film in terms of style, technique and subject matter and laid the foundations for a range of genres from film noir to American Gothic. Starting with early examples of Expressionist cinema, such as The Cabinet of Dr Caligari, Nosferatu and Metropolis we will go on to examine the influence of the movement on the work of later film makers such as Alfred Hitchcock, Charles Laughton, Carol Reed and Tim Burton.
