Movie Nights: Sonic Silents

Movie Nights: Sonic Silents

This Take Art offering on Friday 4 March promises to be a really interesting experience: bring your own bottle along to the Community Hall and settle down to watch fascinating examples of early cinema by Frank Borzage, one of the most distinctive and undiscovered film directors to have emerged from Hollywood.

The films offer an absorbing and poignant glimpse of a bygone time. Novice that he was, Borzage’s bold rejection of the ‘rules’ of film-making gives a modern audience a wonderful, refreshing look at a long-established film tradition.

What makes this unique is that the short films will be accompanied by a new, live score by champion fiddle-player Kate Lissauer of Buffalo Gals fame. She will be joined by master of the five string banjo John Whelan, and Jason Titley, arguably the UK’s finest Bluegrass guitarist, combining original composition and arrangements of traditional material.

Friday 4 March, 7.30pm at Bruton Community Hall. Bring your own bottle. Tickets £8/£6 child/£26 family (2+2) available from Bruton Pharmacy or 813 694.
