Join us for the one and only Salon Amsterdam filmseries:

with this month the old time favourite with a funky fresh twist: Der Golem- with live music by Juju&Jordash feat. Ilya Ziblat Shay!

…In the 16th-century the Maharal of Prague creates a giant creature from clay, called the Golem. Using a Kabbalistic spell, he brings the creature to life in order to protect the Jews of Prague from persecution. Yet the Golem which was supposed to protect the Jews goes out of control and becomes a danger to them all. This film, rooted in German expressionism, is not only one of the first films that deal with the theme of Jewish revenge, but also a precursor to many contemporary Sci-Fi films that raise the question of artificial intelligence and the risk of losing control on our technologies.

Hosting philosopher and film series programmer Amir Vodka with a talk about the Golem’s reincarnations in popular culture, and a world premiere screening of the film accompanied with live electronic music by Juju & Jordash feat. Ilya Ziblat Shay!
