One of the most essential surviving films from the silent era, Sunrise (1927) is F.W. Murnau’s cinematic masterpiece. Detailing the moral dilemmas that arise when a lascivious woman from the city dishevels the life of a farmer and his family, Sunrise is a tale of twisted passion which received the Academy Award for Unique and Artistic Production in 1929.

The ArthouseFW - Silent Sunday films present the visionaries of early cinema who pioneered film and narrative techniques, shifting movies from a simple means of entertainment to a serious artistic medium. Each film in this series will be presented alongside unique live musical accompaniment in the Kimbell Art Museum's Renzo Piano pavilion.
