The Doha Film Institute Cinema (DFI Cinema) will present a very special experience of a classic film The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (Germany/ 1920) by Robert Wiene, accompanied with live performance by the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra. The event, part of the ‘Creators of Horror’ film series by DFI Cinema, will take place on May 3, 7:30 PM at the Opera House, Katara Building 16.

The special event also marks the Qatar-Germany Year of Culture 2017 and is presented in partnership with Qatar Museums, German Embassy and the Goethe Institute, and Katara Cultural Village. Tickets are available at qatarphilharmonicorchestra.org.

The films included in the Creators of Horror showcase were specially curated to present works by master-directors who have redefined the thriller, horror genre, and contributed to its worldwide appeal. The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari is a prominent example of German Expressionist filmmaking, and a gem of the silent era with its imaginative use of lighting, off-kilter sets and camera angles.

The DFI Cinema screenings are part of Doha Film Institute’s year-round initiatives to offer varied cinema experiences, making a valuable contribution to the diversity of screen culture in Qatar, and providing cultural and creative discoveries for audiences in Doha.
