Eye in het Muziekgebouw: Der Golem: wie er in die Welt kam
With music by Franz Liszt, Richard Strauss, Niels Gade, Aleksandr Borodin, Edvard Grieg, Felix Mendelssohn and Aleksandr Skrjabin, selected by Jed Wentz.
The film tells a universal story about oppression and resistance, but also about unleashing a force that escapes the control of its maker. Fanciful, expressionistic sets depict the medieval Jewish ghetto of Prague. Intelligent animation techniques make the magic of rabbi Löw a sight to behold. Director Paul Wegener can be seen as the golem himself.
