Title: 
Stan Brakhage on F. W. Murnau - Part 1
Description: 
Stan Brakhage shows his film 'Sexual Meditation: Hotel' and mentions how he attempts to fight the narrative format often seen in Hollywood movies. Brakhage gives a short description of the Thirty Years' War, Friedrich Wilhelm, and F. W. Murnau. He discusses concepts of psychoanalysis, particularly the primal scene, in relationship to Murnau and women. Brakhage continues with a more detailed biography of Murnau, mentioning Hans Ehrenbaum-Degele, Max Reinhardt, Conrad Veidt, and Emil Jannings. He then summarizes the folk legend of Dracula and analyses Murnau's film 'Nosferatu.' Note: This lecture is part of the source for Brakhage's 1977 book 'Film biographies.' Continued on Stan Brakhage on F. W. Murnau - Part 2.
