"The second film in our ADORED & RESTORED series is PANDORA'S BOX (1929), directed by Austrian filmmaker G.W. Pabst and starring Louise Brooks, is a German dramatic silent based on Frank Wedekind's "Lulu" plays. Pabst searched for months for an actress to play Lulu and hired her as the only American and the featured star of the film. Brooks' portrayal of a seductive, thoughtless young woman, whose raw sexuality and uninhibited nature bring ruin to herself and those who love her, although initially unappreciated, eventually made the actress a star."
A special pick by the Seattle International Film Festival and their Women in Cinema Festival.
