Castle Thunder Cinema presents PANDORA'S BOX

Pandora01

PANDORA’S BOX is director G.W. Pabst’s best-known masterwork, crafted especially for the ineffably vibrant Louise Brooks.  Brooks effortlessly electrifies the folkloric story of hustlers, lovers, pimps, fathers, gamblers, murderers, judges, prostitutes, schemers and decadent wealth.

Crafted at the end of the Silent Era, the film brings together the best techniques of Weimar cinema in a tapestry of archetypes.  Raw humanity glimmers among theatrical trappings and bewildering Brechtian travesties displaying the ‘gaiety that comes from desperation’ for which Weimar-era Germany was known.              

Portland-based sextet Abronia’s atmospheric stir of angular psychedelic western sound blasts a call to arms perfectly suited to Pandora’s Box and the film’s contest between love and violence.
