  • The Tower of Silence

    1925. Germany. Directed by Johannes Guter. Screenplay by Curt J. Braun. With Xenia Desni, Arved Holl, Fritz Delius, Hanna Ralph. A melodramatic UFA release about generational guilt and revenge, of the sort that filled Weimar-era theaters week after week, this is but one of over a hundred films directed by the prodigiously reliable Guter. Restored by the Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau-Stiftung, Wiesbaden. Silent with German intertitles; simultaneous English translation. Approx. 100 min.
