The idea behind these screenings of half a dozen silent features, three per night, is to accompany them with live contemporary music. Assuming that the complete films are being shown, this will make for two long programs; but the only real drawback I see is that you’ll miss the sound track prepared by Hugo Riesenfeld for F.W. Murnau’s Sunrise back in the 20s—an atmospheric blending of music and sound effects that remains one of the best things of its kind. The Tuesday program includes Sunrise (1922), with accompaniment by Anthony Coleman; 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1922), accompaniment by Rebecca Moore; and Paul Wegener and Carl Boese’s The Golem (1920), accompaniment by Gary Lucas. The Wednesday program includes Benjamin Christensen’s odd, essayistic Witchcraft Through the Ages (1922), accompaniment by Judith Ren-Lay; Murnau’s Nosferatu (1922), accompaniment by Liminal; and Robert Wiene’s The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1919), accompaniment by the Mark Dresser Trio. I haven’t seen 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, but the rest are authentic classics.
