Jump back into your social spring semester activities on March 12 with a showing of “Pandora’s Box” at 7 p.m. Hosted by WSU’s Department of History as part of the History Film Series, the show will play at the Shepherd Union Wildcat Theater.
The original film was produced in Germany in 1929, combining the plays “Erdgeist” and “Die Büchse der Pandora.” The silent melodrama follows the story of a young woman fallen from grace who accelerates the downfall of herself and several powerful men.
“Pandora’s Box” remains a classic silent film, one critics call insightful, beautiful and horrifying.
Boston Globe critic Wesley Morris writes, “The movie remains one of the most insightful depictions of the elemental incongruity between man’s nature and woman’s.”
