On view now until April 26, 2015, The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) presents a sweeping exhibition of one of, if not the most important eras in film history, 1920’s German Cinema. Organized by La Cinémathèque française, Paris, the exhibition features over 150 drawings, as well as manuscripts, posters, and set models, the majority gathered by Lotte Eisner, German emigrée film historian and author of the pioneering 1952 text The Haunted Screen.
The Weimar era was a very liberal time in Germany and the arts were cherished, and in turn able to thrive. So many classic films from M to the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari to the groundbreaking Metropolis came from this time period. LACMA’s film exhibitions are always incredible and this looks to be no exception. Very excited to take it all in.
