THE CABINET OF DR CALIGARI

This 1920 silent horror film directed by Robert Wiene is one of the most influential of German Expressionist films and is often considered one of the greatest horror movies of the silent era.The film used stylized sets with abstract jagged buildings painted on canvas backdrops and flats. These unique sets gave off somewhat of a theatrical sense. To add to this strange style the actors used an unrealistic technique that exhibited jerky and dancelike movements. This movie is cited as having introduced the twist ending in cinema.

MINIMA

“One of the spring’s coolest events…they capture the film’s disturbing mood perfectly” (The Daily Telegraph)“Acclaimed soundscapers Minima provide a superlative soundtrack…recommended.” (Time Out)Minima’s music is an audacious 21st-Century interpretation of the images of silent and avant-garde film. Formed in 2006 specifically designed to compose and perform live accompaniment soundtracks to silent film. Using electric guitar bass cello and drums the band performs totally live to capture and enhance the true dynamics of the screenplay bringing the silver screen to life. http://www.minimamusic.co.uk/ http://www.hackneyattic.com
