German Expressionist Cinema: The World of Light and Shadow - Ian Roberts

This month, we are sharing a resource that will be a great starting point for students beginning to explore Weimar film. Ian Roberts' German Expressionist Cinema: The World of Light and Shadow offers insights into the technical and thematic developments of the Weimar film. Covering classics such as The Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari (1920) and Nosferatu (1922) as well as under-appreciated examples such as Asphalt (1929), this volume forms an essential introduction to one of cinema's most historically important movements. You can purchase the book on Amazon.
