about this item

Expressionism and Film, originally published in German in 1926, is not only a classic of film history, but also an important work from the early phase of modern media history. Written with analytical brilliance and historical vision by a well-known contemporary of the expressionist movement, it captures Expressionism at the time of its impending conclusion--as an intersection of world view, resoluteness of form, and medial transition. Though one of the most frequently-cited works of Weimar culture, Kurtz’s groundbreaking work, which is on a par with Siegfried Kracauer’s From Caligari to ****** and Lotte Eisner’s The Haunted Screen, has never been published in English. Its relevance and historical contexts are analysed in a concise afterword by the Swiss Scholars Christian Kiening and Ulrich Johannes Beil.
