Destiny, GFT, 12 – 15 June, 2017



GFT, 12 Rose St, G3 6RB

In this influential early work from Fritz Lang, a young woman confronts Death in an effort to save the life of her fiancé. Death weaves three romantic tragedies and offers to unite the girl with her lover, if she can prevent the death of the lovers in at least one of the episodes. Thus begin three exotic scenarios of ill-fated love, in which the woman must somehow reverse the course of destiny. Destiny marked a bold step for Lang, away from conventional melodrama and into the kind of filmmaking that would culminate in such stylized works as Die Nibelungen and Metropolis. 

Digital Restoration with new score from Cornelius Schwehr.
