A remastered version of a silent horror film will be screened in Clevedon next week.

Der Golem will be screened alongside a live accompaniment from HarmonieBand on October 23 at the Curzon cinema, in Old Church Road, at 7.30pm.

The cinema has teamed up with Bristol's Festival Of Ideas for a 4K restoration of the 1920 classic.

Director, writer and actor Paul Wegener made three films based on the ancient Jewish myth of the Golem.

Der Golem was regarded as his finest piece of work, capped by Karl Freund's lighting and cinematography and expressionistic designs of architect Hans Poelzig.

Threatened with expulsion, the Jews of the 16th-century city of Prague seek help from the Golem, a clay monster brought to life through ancient, mystical powers to protect them.

With its foreshadowing of Jewish persecution to come, Der Golem emerged as one of the great masterpieces of silent cinema.

The special screening is part of a series of events in collaboration with South West Silents, Bristol Festival Of Ideas, Cube Cinema, and Watershed, celebrating the films of the Weimar Republic.

A live rendition of the film's score will be performed by HarmonieBand, who have featured at many UK film festivals, art centres and around Europe.

Tickets, priced £5-21, is available at or on box office on 01275 871000.
