A restored copy of FW Murnau‘s classic silent movie, from 1922, was projected on the wall of the Ibirapuera Auditorium last Friday (2) as part of the closing of the 36th edition of São Paulo’s International Film Festival.

The movie soundtrack for this outdoor screening was performed live by Petrobras Symphonic Orchestra and Choir Project X, for the second time ever, a play written by German conductor Pierre Oser in honor of the centenary of the Irish writer Bram Stoker, author of “Dracula” work in which “Nosferatu” is inspired

Actor, he said he is “very intimate” to “Nosferatu” a role he played in a short film called “Nosferatu, The Ruin of Darkness.” “My friends asked me to come characterized and I almost did it, but the makeup takes four hours to be completed,” he said.
