Toronto Silent Film Festival-VARIETÉ


Presented by: Toronto Silent Film Festival

Experience Live Cinema-classic silent films with live music

Closing Night. The Berlin of the 1920s: decadent, dangerous... and the backdrop for the last great German expressionist film-VARIETÉ 1925
Boss Huller, a famous aerialist before suffering an accident that ended his career, has never revealed his motives for the murder that sent him to prison…until now.

The classic love triangle between Boss, his alluring wife and the handsome trapeze artist who comes between them, unfolds in Varieté, one of the most renowned German expressionist films. The innovative “swinging camera” of cinematographer Karl Freund (Last Laugh, Metropolis), is on display here, making the movie’s acrobatic scenes as thrilling today as they were in 1925. Listed as one of the top films of that year by critics, and a box office hit in both Europe and the USA, Varieté ensured the continuing influence of German artists on Hollywood, right through to the end of the silent era.
Plus: Animation from the Lawless Days-CAMERAMAN'S REVENGE 1912 Stop motion animation that will leave you breathless.
Live musical interpretation by Laura Silberberg on piano
