tickets here

“Multi-instrumentalist and electronic music whiz Brian LeBarton, who for years has been the close collaborative partner of Beck Hansen, returns to the Cinefamily to bring his unique aural vision to classic films from the silent era! For May’s visit, Brian scores Sunrise, a picture widely regarded as one of the best films of the 1920s! In F.W. Murnau’s morality tale, Anses (George O’Brien), a sensitive and easily-swayed farmer, falls under the spell of The Woman From The City (Margaret Livingston), a jezebel who convinces him to run off with her — but only after he murders his innocent wife Indre (Janet Gaynor). Murnau used his expert German Expressionist techniques to craft a fairytale ride through the tortured mental landscape of a man caught between devotion and seduction, making Sunrise the most vibrant of all his Hollywood productions. – Dir. F.W. Murnau, 1927, 35mm, 95 min.”
