We are very excited to announce a very special Silent Movie Live Score coming to Lamar on July 8 & 11.
Justin Sherburne and Montopolis have created an all-new score to accompany Dziga Vertov's avant-garde silent classic THE MAN WITH A MOVIE CAMERA. The film is a fascinating repository of experimental techniques and effects, a loose documentary on the daily life of Soviet citizens, but also a film-drunk pageant of cinematic excess. Vertov set out to reinvent the medium, disentangling it from the influences of the novel and stage. It is a film that blazes its own trail deep into the frontiers of the imagination.
The new score has been created by Justin Sherburne (Okkervill River) with all the energy and enthusiasm for creation that Vertov and his collaborators showed. This will be an evening of high culture, music and smart fun.
Buy tickets for these special events here.
Also, if this kind of thing floats your boat, don't miss the Tod Browning/Lon Chaney classic THE UNKNOWN with a Live Score by Les Freres Meduses, food, wine and more on June 22 at Laguna Gloria. Details about that show are here.
