JANUARY-MARCH TERM, WEEK 10: The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari

So, the end of another term, and for myself, one of the most rewarding. Not that previous terms have not been rewarding,  but this term saw some real  home runs being scored.
Well done everyone.
To cap the end of  term, I thought it would be good to watch , Robert Wiene's, The Cabinet Of Dr. Caligari. It's only 50 minutes long which meant we also had plenty of time for drawing.
If you want to find out  more about the film and it's director you could start here

This movie , along with, F.W. Murnau's Nosferatu (1922) and Fritz Lang's, 1927 science fiction epic, Metropolis, left a lasting impression on me.
all examples of German Expressionist cinema  and provide  a wealth of inspiration for graphic fantasy.
