Algol Abuse

algol70003

Production design art from ALGOL (1920). Pretty exciting! The movie seems to anticipate METROPOLIS in some ways, as well as constituting a kind of sci-fi version of Faust.

Designed by Walter Reimann and Hans Scheerbart. Directed by Hans Werckmeister

I guess the above represents the alien world of Algol (Algol is the name of a real star).

Good news! The movie is restored and available soon! Check out the amazing trailer: http://www.edition-filmmuseum.com/media/movies/70_large.flv
