Georg Wilhelm Pabst’s Pandora’s Box
August 23, 2018 at 7 PM
Featuring live piano accompaniment by Carolyn Swartz, PANDORA’S BOX is required viewing for fans of decadence. In the decidedly pre-Hays Code world of 1929, director Georg Wilhelm Pabst’s PANDORA’S BOX is a stylish downward journey into desperation and squalor. Gambling, pimping, manslaughter, carousing and Jack the Ripper – it’s all here, with the luminescent Louise Brooks, who takes over the screen like few other actresses, at its center. Brooks delivers a landmark performance as Lulu. This is a rare screening of a real gem. August 23, 7 p.m., St. Lawrence Arts. $8.
