7:00 p.m. Lecture
8:00 p.m. Film

After World War I, Germany became the leading producer of avant-garde cinema. F.W. Murnau’s Nosferatu (1922), a vampire tale based on Bram Stoker’s Dracula, remains one of the defining films of the immensely popular horror genre. Dr. Ariel Plotek, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at The San Diego Museum of Art, introduces the film and discusses the influence of German Expressionist aesthetics on this classic motion picture. Not rated, 1 hour 21 minutes.

Join us before the screening at 6:30 p.m. for a horror-themed photo booth inspired by German Expressionism. Tag us @thesandiegomuseumofart on Instagram and use the hashtag #SanDiegoMuseumofArt to be entered into our photo booth contest for a chance to win a $25 gift card to Panama 66, a Frida Kahlo-themed magnet, socks, or a 3-D puzzle!
