LA Happenings: Herzog's NOSFERATU Haunts The Cinefamily In 35mm
So not only is The Cinefamily screening the film for a week (May 16 - 22) in a newly made 35mm print, it's the German language version of the film, which has rarely been shown on these shores, and in my opinion has the stronger performances from German natives Ganz and Kinski.
Sure, while you could go ahead and watch either version at home, how can one resist a Herzog classic on the big screen in 35mm. I was lucky enough to watch the film print at a screening last week and while it isn't in pristine condition, thanks to the varying quality of the original footage itself, it sure as hell is pretty... in the most Gothic sense, of course. And while opening night with Herzog in person is long sold out, who knows if the man will surprise the crowd on one of the other nights.
Get full deets on the run right here.
