Nearing its 100th anniversary, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari is getting a brand new 4k restoration, thanks to the Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau Foundation, reports Indiewire.
Robert Wiene’s German Expressionist silent film follows the story of sinister Dr. Caligari as he uses a somnambulist named Cesare to perform murders in the night.
Explains the site: “The digitalization was a collaborative process between the Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau Foundation, their main sponsor Bertelsmann SE & Co. KGaA, as well as the Museum of Modern Art in New York, among others.
“Although the 4K restoration has yet to receive a dedicated home video release date, it seems that it might in the near future, thanks to the involvement of distributor Kino Lorber.”
