Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans

One of the undisputed pinnacles of silent cinema, this lyrical masterpiece from the director of Nosferatu, and Faust, is a study of betrayal, love and reconciliation. Seduced by a vamp from the city, a man from a small fishing village plans to murder his wife during a boat trip to town. However, both reach their destination unscathed and there amid a dazzling panoply of urban attractions, the couple rediscover their love for each other. This restored masterpiece “one of the most enchanting and heart-rending experiences that cinema can offer”, and last shown to this Group in 2005, now incorporates the first restoration of the film’s wonderful original soundtrack.
