Das Cabinet der Dr Caligari (Robert Wiene, 1920) is the symbol of German Expressionist Cinema and it is considered the first horror movie ever. It explores the theme of doubles and the border in between reality and hallucination/imagination that has inspired a movie like Shutter Island by Martin Scorzese. The live soundtrack rendition composed and performed by Alessandro Baris, Beppe Scardino and Gabriele Evangelista, it is based on a succession of crescendo and decrescendo of odd and tense Jazz moments alternated with dark and minimal electronics evocating the two states of mind of reality and hallucination described in the movie.
