DEU | 1929 | dir. Georg Wilhelm Pabst, with Louise Brooks, Fritz Kortner, Francis Lederer | new print

In Weimar Germany, Lulu (Louise Brooks) is an entrancing and free-spirited girl who lives on the beneficences of the men who fall under her spell. Her current paramour is the highly-respectable Dr. Schön, who comes to believe he must marry her, even though he has been engaged to a more respectable woman. At their wedding, he becomes mad with jealousy, and tragedy ensues.

Due to the Live Broadcast of the World Cup final at the Institut français, the screening on 15 July has been cancelled. We apologise for the inconvenience.
