PANDORA’S BOX (1929) – TORONTO THEATRICAL PREMIERE OF NEW RESTORATION!

Germany | 1929 | 133 minutes | NR


Toronto Restoration Premiere-A TSFF exclusive screening

The Beautiful and Damned. 

Today, Pandora’s Box is rightly celebrated as one of silent cinema’s greatest masterpieces. Brilliantly directed by G. W. Pabst, it’s a dark, beautiful film filled with meticulous attention to details, fluid camera work, expressive lighting and, of course, the potent performance by Louise Brooks as Lulu. Lulu is a woman who is driven by her desires and in her wake she leaves a trail of destruction and even death. 

For many, this is the only performance by Louise Brooks that they’ve ever seen, and now, with the latest restoration, her beauty, power and presence makes it even more memorable.
