The “off kilter” graphic richness of Expressionist painting helped spawn the Golden Era of German Cinema, 1919 – 1933. Wrought with shadow, mood, artifice, authoritarian repression, and even monsters, German Expressionist cinema left an indelible mark on film style and history. Each session includes a lecture and a feature length movie (with a break in between). This class complements the installation of the VMFA’s European Modern art collection, which includes German Expressionist works from The Ludwig and Rosy Fischer Collection.
Enrollment limit: 40
No refunds unless VMFA cancels a class. VMFA will cancel a class if 12 students are not enrolled one week before the start date.
