Tonka of the Gallows

October 28 at 2:30
East Building Auditorium

Tonka of the Gallows is an emotionally delicate, graceful tale of a naive but tender prostitute (Ita Rina) who comforts a poor condemned man one evening, then suffers an unlucky fate for the rest of her life. An early achievement of post-synchronized sound, this recent rediscovery combines the distinctly realistic genre of street film (Strassefilme) with touches of poetic expressionism. (Karl Anton, 1930, subtitles, 81 minutes)
