Monday, January 27 at 7 PM, Kinonik and St. Lawrence Arts Center presents:
THE GOLEM: HOW HE CAME INTO THE WORLD
Set in 16th Century Prague, THE GOLEM: HOW HE CAME INTO THE WORLD (1920) tells the story of a rabbi, fearing the persecution of the Jews of the city, builds a golem out of clay. But the golem runs goes on a rampage and attacks the ghetto inhabitants. A classic of German expressionism -- cinematographer Karl Freund would go on to METROPOLIS (1927) -- the film's golem influenced horror and was a precursor to Frankenstein monsters. THE GOLEM: HOW HE CAME INTO THE WORLD is the third and last in Paul Wegener's golem films, and it is the only film not completely lost.
Christopher Akerlund will speak before the film about the relationship between it and the stage play from which it is derived. Carolyn Swartz will provide musical accompaniment.

Happy last day of 2019 to fans, followers, family, friends, film cineastes and everybody else!
This is 𝗞𝗶𝗻𝗼𝗻𝗶𝗸's last appeal for support for 2019. 𝗞𝗶𝗻𝗼𝗻𝗶𝗸 is a nonprofit screening classic and significant films in 16mm format. We have a 500+ films, and we run 2 series concurrently. Last year, we screened silent films, with musical accompaniment, 𝘒𝘪𝘯𝘰𝘚𝘪𝘭𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘴, at St. Lawrence Arts, and we screened classic noir, 𝘒𝘪𝘯𝘰𝘕𝘰𝘪𝘳, at SPACE.
Thank you to everyone who's attended our screenings! Thank you to Carolyn Swartz and Stu Mahan for providing live music for 𝘒𝘪𝘯𝘰𝘚𝘪𝘭𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘴!
In 2020, 𝗞𝗶𝗻𝗼𝗻𝗶𝗸 will continue 𝘒𝘪𝘯𝘰𝘚𝘪𝘭𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘴 at St. Lawrence Arts, and we will expand our SPACE programming to include both noir and Alfred Hitchcock films. We plan to begin weekend afternoon screenings of silent comedy for kids (and parents) with live accompaniment this winter. We also plan programs focused on specific directors, like John Ford, Akira Kurosawa, Luis Buñuel and others.
