F.W. Murnau’s SUNRISE on film

Pittsburgh Sound + Image has plenty to celebrate this February, and you’re invited! Join us for a very special screening of F.W. Murnau’s Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans, presented as it was meant to be seen: on real, beautiful motion picture film.

Take your pick: we’re commemorating FOUR occasions in ONE night!

  • Coming in at #11 on the recent Sight and Sound critics poll, Sunrise has once again ranked highly on the list of greatest films of all time. Does it deserve it? There’s only one way to find out….
  • What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than with a fable of true love…after attempted uxoricide (as directed by a noted homosexual)!
  • Get your Oscar season kicks with the movie that shared the equivalent of Best Picture at the very first Oscar ceremony in 1929
  • Start your Fair Use Week a couple days early with the head of this year’s public domain class, coming in at a sprightly 95 years young.

Sunrise will be presented from a ravishing 16mm print with the original Fox Movietone score. This film has been generously supplied by our friends at Kinonik.

The feature will be preceded by Henri Chomette’s 1926 avant-garde film Jeux des reflets et de la vitesse (also on 16mm.)
