“Sirens & Sinners: A Visual History of Weimar Film”
With this collection of movie images made in the German Republic between the wars, “Sirens & Sinners: A Visual History of Weimar Film” author Hans Helmut Prinzler shows us stills from a period -1918-1933 – that gave birth to modern alienation. In bringing the shadows & asymmetries of Expressionism to the cinema, directors such as Fritz Lang & F.W. Murnau gave beautiful, terrible form to 20th century angst, and a legacy of visual influence still relevant today.
