Klaus Pohl, Will Fritsch, Gustav von Wangenheim. Directed by Fritz Lang. 95 minutes, 1929.
A grand sci-fi adventure epic about the first rocket ship to the moon. The rarely-screened final silent feature from German filmmaker Fritz Lang (director of ‘Metropolis’), ‘Woman in the Moon’ laid the groundwork for all of the great outer space movie tales to come, complete with melodramatic plot and eye-popping visuals. Welcome the year 2015 by pondering a vision of the future as imagined by one of yesterday’s great moviemakers.
