Toronto Silent Film Festival presents TABU: A TALE OF THE SOUTH SEAS


Presented by: Toronto Silent Film Festival

The haunting love story set in the pristine south seas

Master director F. W. Murnau's last film, “Tabu is one of cinema’s simplest, most lyrical and masterful expressions of a despairing romanticism succumbing to the realities of a world from which none of us can escape. Its haunting imagery is intrinsically lovely, its rhythms unique, its denouement overwhelming.”
—Charles Silver, Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Paradise, or Paradise Lost? Young love blossoms between a pearl diver (Matahi) and a pretty girl (Reri) against the backdrop of a pristine South Seas world. But just as they’ve found happiness with each other, fate intervenes: Reri is chosen as the sacred maiden and declared ‘tabu’ to all men. The young lovers flee the island and travel far away, to a place where no one knows them. They’re forced into the confusing and corrupt white man’s world and hunted down by their own people, determined to retrieve Reri.
Note: This is the uncensored and complete version of the film and will be screened with the original soundtrack.
Plus: "Animation from the Lawless Days" Krazy Kat and Mutt & Jeff cartoons with live musical accompaniment by Bill Lasovich
