DIRECTOR: F.W. MURNAU

CAST: GEORGE O'BRIEN, JANET GAYNOR, MARGARET LIVINGSTON, BODIL ROSING

One of the most grandiose art films ever made, a sort of requiem for the closing silent era whose production required the construction of massive, ornate sets at Fox studios, like the sprawling, bejeweled City where lovers George O’Brien and Janet Gaynor rekindle a soured love affair. We’re getting a little choked up just thinking about it.

Sunrise: A Song Of Two Humans is screening as part of the series: Welcome to Metrograph: A to Z
