Der Golemwie wie er in die Welt kam, Germania, 1920, 85 min.
regia: Paul Wegener & Carl Boese
cu: Albert Steinruck, Paul Wegener, Otto Gebuhr, Ernst Deutsch si Lyda Salmonova

In timp ce legenda evreiasca din Praga despre Golem a suferit varii repovestiri si readaptari cinematografice, versiunea din 1920 a filmului Der Golem, regizat de  Paul Wegener si Carl Boese, ramane versiunea esentiala a povestii din secolul 16.

Albert Steinruck il interpreteaza pe Rabbi Loew, un alchimist care prevesteste ca poporul evreu va suferi in curand persecutii. Pentru a le intampina, el sculpteaza un om din ceara care sa serveasca drept aparatorul lor, aducandu-l pe Golem(Paul Wegener) la viata prin interventia supernaturalului. Datorita talentelor sale de magician, Rabbi Loew este invitat la un festival la palatul imparatului Luhois (Otto Gebuhr), unde inteleptul pledeaza pentru poporul sau. In momentul in care tavanul castelului se prabuseste si ameninta sa ii striveasca pe toti cei care sunt in cladire, Golem ii salveaza, convingandu-l astfel pe imparat sa opreasca opresiunile asupra poporului evreu. Mai tarziu, in timp ce Rabbi este plecat, asistentul sau (Ernst Deutsch) preia controlul asupra lui Golem, pentru ca acesta sa il alunge pe unul dintre oamenii imparatului, petitor al fiicei lui Rabbi, Miriam (Lyda Salmonova). Dar Famulus este incapabil sa-l controleze pe Golem, care il ucide pe intrus, da foc casei lui Rabbi Loew si evadeaza, tragand-o dupa el pe Miriam, pe strazile Pragai. Impresionanta secventa in care Golem a fost creat a influentat numeroase filme care au urmat, printre care faimosul Faust (1926) al lui F.W. Murnau si multe alte adaptari ulterioare.

Clasicul film mut va fi acompaniat de catre Sasha-Liviu Stoianovici (saxofon baglama si electronice) si Calin Torsan (fluiere, clarinet). Ambii muzicieni sunt membri ai trupei NU & APA NEAGRA – grup de muzica experimentala / improvizata / psihedelica.

ENGLISH VERSION

                             golem_der_1274187379_1915.jpg

While the Prague Jewish legend of the Golem has undergone numerous retellings and variations in the cinema, the 1920 version of Der Golem, directed by Paul Wegener and Carl Boese, remains the essential version of the 16th-century tale.

Albert Steinruck portrays Rabbi Loew, a alchemist who prophesies that the Jewish people are soon to suffer persecution. He responds by sculpting a man of clay to act as their defender and brings the Golem (Paul Wegener) to life through supernatural intervention. Because of his talents as a magician, Rabbi Loew is invited to a festival at the palace of the Emperor Luhois (Otto Gebuhr), where the wise man pleads on behalf of his people. When the roof of the palace collapses and threatens to crush all those within, the Golem supports the sinking beams, inspiring the Emperor to end his oppression of the Jewish people. Afterwards, while the rabbi is away, his assistant (Ernst Deutsch) takes control of the Golem in order to chase away one of the Emperor’s men who is wooing the Rabbi’s daughter Miriam (Lyda Salmonova). But Famulus is unable to control the Golem, which kills the intruder, sets fire to Rabbi Loew’s house and escapes, dragging Miriam by the hair through the streets of Prague. The dazzling creation sequence of Der Golem, influenced numerous films that followed, such as F.W. Murnau’s Faust (1926) and many of the following adaptations.

This classical silent movie will be accompanied by Sasha-Liviu Stoianovici (on baglama sax, electronics) and Calin Torsan (on reeds, clarinets). Both musicians are members of NU & APA NEAGRA – group of experimental / improvised / psychedelic music.

In collaboration with Goethe Institut in Bucharest.
