Casper Tybjerg

Associate Professor

I am a film historian and particularly concerned with silent cinema and the films of Carl Theodor Dreyer. I have helped restore Dreyer’s films Once Upon a Time and Love One Another. I have recorded audio commentaries for DVD editions of La Passion de Jeanne d'Arc, Michael, and Day of Wrath as well as for Benjamin Christensen's Häxan and Victor Sjöström's The Phantom Carriage. I am the review editior of Journal of Scandinavian Cinema and a former member of the board of the Society for the Cognitive Study of the Moving Image.

I contributed to Sight and Sound's 2012 Greatest Films poll. Se my vote here.
