Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans (1927) is one of the most historically pivotal of all films. A lavish and sumptuous production, it was the first film made in America by the celebrated German director F.W. Murnau, who also directed Nosferatu (1922). Sunrise mediates between German expressionism and American melodrama, the Avant-Garde and popular fiction, silent cinema and talkies. Lucy Fischer's book is a model of film analysis, locating Sunrise in a fascinating range of historical aesthetic and philosophical contexts.
