Austria, 2013, 60 Minute Running Time
Genre/Subjects: Biographical, Documentary, Horror, Short
Program: Shorts in a Feature-Length World
DIRECTOR: Norbert Pfaffenbichler
A one-person piece for the “man with a thousand faces.” Silent-horror-film icon Lon Chaney was the son of deaf-mute parents, and thus perfected pantomime as a child. He rose to fame as a master of disguise with a penchant for grotesque appearances and torturous contortions. As a tribute, in A Messenger from the Shadows, Norbert Pfaffenbichler has remounted 46 preserved films of the 200 that Chaney made.
