10/30/2016 The Man Who Laughs Southeast $10 - $19

TSFF & The Fox present a masterpiece silent film with live musical accompaniment by Bill O'Meara. Conrad Veidt (Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, Casablanca) stars as a sideshow performer disfigured as a child as revenge for his father's treachery. While the crowds jeer at his face, he hides a love for the beautiful, blind Dea. A corrupt Duchess (decadently played by Olga Baclanova) develops a fetishistic fascination for him but her attempts at seduction hid an evil purpose. A hauntingly beautiful film, fully embracing German expressionism of shadows and light. Veidt's highly disturbing face was the inspiration for The Joker of Batman fame. This was also the first major makeup assignment for Jack Pierce who went on to create Frankenstein.

When I moved to Jimei 9 months ago, I was not familiar with the place. I got used to it after half a year. According to one of my neighbors, “Some part of Jimei is nice, some part of Jimei is disgusting”. Not for only once, when I walk along some beautiful quiet streets of Jimei, I feel the beauty of it and feel like in the heaven. Even till now  I am still not familiar with it, but when the bus drives along the bridge and I look at that place, I know I do know something about this place and it is part of my memory for ever. And just before the Chinese new year, I hear the song composed by one of the Jimei people. “最美是集美,集天下之美”.
