Woman In The Moon
Add to Calendar
Show at 6:00 PM
Made right between his masterpieces METROPOLIS and M, Fritz Lang’s overlooked 1929 sci-fi opus WOMAN IN THE MOON is a gleeful, moving ode to the adventure of space travel that has spectacle, drama and Expressionist style to burn.
Written by Lang’s then-wife Thea von Harbou, the story weaves corporate espionage, love affairs and rocket science into a rollicking, fictionalized chronicle of the first voyage to the moon. Lang famously employed Germany’s leading rocketry expert, Hermann Oberth to consult, resulting in the first ‘serious’ sci-fi film, one with startlingly accurate predictions about the technological demands of space travel.
Rare 95-minute theatrical release version as originally seen in 1929!
Plus, because no silent film space voyage would be complete without it, we will be opening the program with a unique print of Georges Méliès iconic 1902 short A TRIP TO THE MOON.
