A classic silent film with live music by harpist Elizabeth-Jane Baldry USA, 1927, 95 mins, certificate U
The great German director FW Murnau, creator of the unforgettable Nosferatu, was lured to work in Hollywood in 1926 and the result was one of silent film’s masterpieces. An intimate, emotionally complex story combined with beautiful camerawork won Sunrise three Oscars at the first Academy Awards in 1929. With live harp accompaniment, Sunrise is silent film at its most sumptuous and dramatic.
Part of Yorkshire Silent Film Festival, taking silent film with live music to village halls, cinemas and theatres around Yorkshire every May.
