The second in a short season introducing the rich and immersive world of silent film with live music. The Hippodrome is proud to present the new 4K restoration of this classic of German Cinema, with live accompaniment by Stephen Horne of the score commissioned to accompany the film's re-release to cinemas this month.

Set in the Jewish ghetto of medieval Prague, the film opens with the Jewish community being threatened with removal from the city. Responding to this crisis, Rabbi Loew, the head of the city's Jewish community, begins to construct a monstrous figure out of clay - the mythical golem of the title. Calling upon ancient, mystical powers, the Rabbi brings this creature to life, hoping to protect his people.

With its foreshadowing of the Jewish persecution that was to come in Europe, Der Golem is a powerful and poignant piece of film-making - capped by inventive special effects, and exhilarating lighting and cinematography. The film is also one of the earliest examples of the horror movie, and a clear precursor to the classic monster movies produced by Universal Studios in the 1930s - Freund went on to work in Hollywood on classic horrors such as Dracula (1931) and The Mummy (1932).
