    • Synopsis
    • The film tells the story of German Cinema in the Twenties between Expressionism and New Sobriety. This was the most important period of German Cinema, a time full of wonders and invention. The aesthetic foundations were laid for the "seventh art".

      FROM CALIGARI TO HITLER is the first feature documentary ever on German Cinema of the Twenties. It shows well known films, but furthermore forgotten, never shown or totally unknown material.
      This is an entertaining rollercoaster-trip to the best period of German Cinema and into the abyss of sub-consciousness.
