A masterpiece of German Expressionism, Sunrise was the winner at the first Academy Awards for Unique and Artistic Picture and Best Actress and is called by many the greatest film of the silent era. Spinelli's new musical score, defined by the San Francisco Examiner as an "Astounding mix of Hendrix, Badalamenti, Vaughn and The Edge" will be performed live by the composer.
Sunrise is a love triangle following the arrival of the irresistible Woman From the City to a small lakeside town to tempt a handsome family Man to leave his Wife (Janet Gaynor in her Oscar-winning role).
This pioneering film is still heralded for its technical creativity and fairy-tale poetry of both rural life and the bustling city and is considered one of the most beautiful films of all time (F. Truffaut).
