Marion Ackermann’s Movie Pick

I asked museum director Marion Ackermann what had been the biggest development in the art world in the last hundred years. She came up with an interesting answer: “Film.” So, I was all the more intrigued to discover what she would choose as her FMOAT. Here, too, she surprised me: “Murnau.” OK, I said, but that’s a director and not a movie. “If you’re going to press me, then I’ll go for Murnau’s masterpiece: Nosferatu.” Good choice! Also known as Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror. What a title!!
