The Devil Strikes at Night

When: Thu., Feb. 26, 6:30 p.m. 2015

Nachts wenn der Teufel kam (The Devil Strikes at Night) tackles the paradox of a serial killer at large in a society premised on exponential serial killing, Nazi Germany, and against the carnage of the Second World War. Directed in 1957 by Robert Siodmak on his return from Hollywood, Nachts mixes expressionist lighting and documentary footage to present this true case of a serial killer in wartime Berlin. It uses both murder and detection to illuminate Nazi attitudes to deviance, the law and individualized murder. In German language with English subtitles. (35mm presentation)
