Ellen Kushner introduces Vampyr
Carl Theodor Dreyer, France/Germany, 1932 (73 min)

A student of the occult enters a small village outside of Paris that is plagued by vampires. Dreyer's film combines gorgeous cinematography and complex characters that never allow the audience to stop thinking.

Her award-winning novels include the mannerpunk cult classic Swordspoint and Thomas the Rhymer (World Fantasy Award).
