Secrets of the Orient (Geheimnisse des Orients/ Shéhérazade)

Ongoing

With Marcella Albani, D. Dmitriev, Brigitte Helm. Germany/France. This exquisite fantasy of an escape into the “Orient” features over-the-top ornamental sets by Ivan Lochakoff and sensuous costumes by Boris Bilinsky, a magnificent blend of Eastern and Western motifs. With its paradisical atmosphere and a sumptuously stencil-colored sequence, the film is a fairy-tale world of fancy filled with adventure, magic, mystery, and harem dancers.

Free with Museum admission.
