On Sunday, April 10th, Vancouver’s Van City Theatre will present the forgotten 1920 fantasy film Genuine.

The little-known followup to Robert Wiene’s classic, The Cabinet of Dr. CaligariGenuine is the story of a vampire femme fatale kept by a rich madman.

Produced by Berlin’s Decla-Bioscop company, Genuine has for many years existed only in fragments. Vancouver film maker Mark Oliver, grandson of one of the film’s original producers has taken on the task of painstakingly reassembling all known material to create a new, condensed version.

An opiated journey into a fantasy netherworld, no other film so closely evokes the spirit, (and decadence) of Weimar Berlin. Genuine must be seen to believed!

This special screening will feature live musical accompaniment by The Oliver-Film Ensemble:

Daniel Ruiz-percussion

Marc Wild-Electric Guitar

Matt O’Donnell-Electric Bass & Sitar

Vi-An Diep-Guzheng

Justin Patterson-Loops, Samples & Electronic Percussion
