A Messenger from The Shadows
(Notes on Film 06-A, Monologue 01)
A one-person film of the “man with a thousand faces.” Silent horror film icon Lon Chaney was the son of deaf-mute parents and had perfected the art of pantomime as a child. He rose to fame as a master of disguise with a penchant for grotesque appearances and torturous contortions. Norbert Pfaffenbichler has remounted the forty-six preserved films of the two hundred that Chaney made into a tribute to Chaney’s art, to the uncanny power of the horror film, and to the paradoxical enchantment of cinema.
