Kurt Ralske presents his research into the experimental film work of Fritz Lang and F.W.Murnau. With the rediscovery of this little-known genre, 1920s Berlin moves forwards and backwards in time simultaneously. The price of admission to this parallel universe is only your credulity. “Through the slightest of digital interventions, these lost landmarks of early experimental cinema have been retrieved from the Akashic Record.” The mysteries of the Schüfftan Process will be revealed!
