In L’Inhumaine (dir. Marcel L’Herbier, France, 1924) an opera diva’s celebrity reaches new heights with the help of a scientist’s imaginative inventions, in a film that resembles an elaborate abstract painting thanks to designs by painter Fernand Léger and architect Robert Mallet-Stevens. Digitally restored by Lobster Films, this rare film can be viewed again on the big screen and admired in all of its intricate detail.
Free and open to the public. Complimentary medium popcorn for Kemper Art Museum members.
