EXPRESSIONISM AND FILM. Rudolf Kurtz. John Libbey Publishing, New Barnet, 2016. Distributed by Indiana University Press, Bloomington. 250 pp. with 90 ills. (5 col.). 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9780861967186 In English.
Publisher's description: Expressionism and Film, originally published in German in 1926, is not only a classic of film history, but also an important work from the early phase of modern media history. Written with analytical brilliance and historical vision by a well-known contemporary of the expressionist movement, it captures Expressionism at the time of its impending conclusion -- as an intersection of world view, resoluteness of form, and medial transition. Though one of the most frequently-cited works of Weimar culture, Kurtz's groundbreaking work, which is on a par with Siegfried Kracauer's From Caligari to Hitler and Lotte Eisner's The Haunted Screen, has never been published in English. Its relevance and historical contexts are analyzed in a concise afterword by the Swiss scholars Christian Kiening and Ulrich Johannes Beil.
