The Golem-Hans Poelzig

...architect Hans Poelzig designed the sets as a reproduction of the medieval Jewish Ghetto of Prague. He designed them specifically to be filmed, creating highly expressionist imagery. The cinematography of Karl Freund, in collaboration with Poelzig and Wegener (director), is cited as one of the most outstanding examples of German Expressionism.
