The Clark Art Institute will show the 1928 silent film The Wedding March on Friday, August 2, at 4:00 p.m. The film is written and directed by silent film legend Erich von Stroheim, who recreates the Vienna of his youth with biting irony and poignant romance.

The Wedding March is part of the film series "Projections of Vienna, offered every Friday at 4:00 p.m. throughout Gustav Klimt Landscapes and the other Vienna Project exhibitions on view at the Clark through September 2. The series looks at the capital of Austria from a variety of angles-musical, comedic, historical, romantic-and mixes classics of world cinema with popular movies from the silent film era to today. Upcoming films include Mayerling (1936, 95 minutes, French with subtitles) on August 9, and Colonel Redl (1984, 114 minutes) on August 16. The Clark's Vienna exhibitions and film series are part of "The Vienna Project," a six-month series of exhibitions, programs, and special events celebrating the rich and vibrant art and culture of Vienna in the beautiful setting of the Berkshire hills of western Massachusetts.
