VARIETÉ
From the silent era of German cinema
comes a rediscovered masterpiece in VARIETÉ, a visually stunning story about
love and betrayal at a carnival. Emil Jannings (The Blue Angel) stars as a spieler
who becomes entranced by a dancer
(Lya de Putti), but his obsession for her
leads him down a dangerous path of selfdestruction. Featuring genre-defining
camerawork and in beautifully restored
condition, VARIETÉ contains sights
the likes of audiences have not seen in many decades.
After the triumphant success of his
true-life Arctic adventure Nanook
of the North (1922), director Robert
J. Flaherty journeyed with his wife
Frances and their children to the
South Seas island of Savai’i to capture
on film the exotic lifestyles of the Samoan people. In 1975, the Flahertys’ Germany. 1925. 112 min. B&W. German with English intertitles.

POTEMKIN
For eight decades, Sergei Eisenstein’s
1925 masterpiece has remained the most
influential silent film of all time. Yet each
successive generation has seen the movie
subjected to censorship and recutting, its
unforgettable power diluted in unauthorized public domain editions from dubious
sources–until now!
Russia. 1925. 69 min. B&W.
“A great treasure to the lovers of cinema.”

TABU
As the film industry was converting to sound,
F.W. Murnau and Robert J. Flaherty (Moana

visual beauty. Drawing inspiration from the
topography and people of the surrounding islands they fashioned an emotionally rich story
of the romance of a couple in their island paradise. Newly restored from archival 35mm elements and loaded with special features.

conditions with a hand-cranked camera, Captain John Noel captured images of breathtaking beauty and considerable historic significance. Newly restored by the BFI National
Archive with a new orchestral score.
