The Castle of Grieshuus, an eerie, fantastical old dark house, is the object of a deadly inheritance dispute between two brothers with strikingly different wives. Pictorially ravishing – even by Weimar standards – this period drama evokes the feudal past in all its uncompromising strangeness. It’s renowned for its Rembrandt-inspired lighting, magnificent production design and wild, poetic landscapes shot on location.

With live piano accompaniment by Cyrus Gabrysch at the screening on Sunday 26 May 18:00.
