The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari. Organ cinema at the NFM
Adam Tański - organ - Narodowe Forum Muzyki, Main Hall

Program Info:
The penultimate of the shows planned for the summer holidays will feature Dr. Caligari 's Office, directed by Robert Wieny. This 1920 film represents a movement of German expressionism that had a huge impact on the development of cinematography. The sound layer for the silent frames will be created by Adam Tański's organ improvisations.

Dr. Caligari is an itinerant hypnotist who comes to Holstenwall, one of the provincial German towns, accompanied by a somnambulist named Caesar. At the local fair, one of the attractions is Dr. Caligari's office and his companion. The night after the hero's arrival in the city, a murder is committed, and soon another one. Initially, a sleepwalker is suspected of having them. But is it right? After a series of mysterious killings, people are beginning to believe that the doctor might be behind them after all. The unusual visual setting for the characteristically styled scenery influencing the perception of the story was created by three painters: Walter Reimann, Hermann Warm and Walter Röhrig.

It is worth noting that Cabinet of Dr. Caligari clearly refers The Island of Secrets (2010) with Leonard Di Caprio in the lead role, The film, directed by Robert Wieny, is a classic horror film, and at the same time a work that continues to inspire new filmmakers to this day.
