Adapted from a 1921 novel by Felix Hollaender, Varieté is a gem extracted from the golden age of twenties German silent film. The film follows a trapeze artist – accompanied by “unleashed” acrobatic camera work to match. Presented in a new DCP restoration!

“This is a production which not only shows the way in which a story should be unfurled, but impresses one with the magic of the camera in picturing effects, such as the torrent of thoughts rushing through a maddened mind, and the views of the audience from the eyes of a hurtling trapeze performer.” – Mordaunt Hall, The New York Times.

Live musical accompaniment by Cliff Retallick

Dir. Ewald André Dupont, 1925, DCP, 95 min.
