Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans (1927) 16mm/B&W/Sound/94 min. NEW PRINT!

A married farmer falls under the spell of a slatternly woman from the city, who tries to convince him to drown his wife.

Sunrise won an Academy Award for Unique and Artistic Production at the first Academy Awards ceremony in 1929 and sixty years later was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry of the United States Library of Congress for films that are "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."

The 10th anniversary update of the American Film Institute's best 100 films in 2007 placed it #82,while the decennial Sight and Sound poll of 2012 for the British Film Institute named it the fifth-best film in the history of motion pictures by critics, and 22nd by directors.

Director: F.W. Murnau

Stars: George O'Brien, Janet Gaynor, Margaret Livingston
