An evening of captivating silent films rescored by innovative live artists.
Sons of Noel and Adrian in collaboration with Kopek
The Seashell and The Clergyman (La Coquille et la Clergyman).
Sons of Noel and Adrian are a folk collective from Brighton who will be joined by fellow Willkommen Collective member, Kopek. In a collaboration that is set to be as lofty and inspiring as their individual efforts, they perform their score for what is generally regarded as the first surrealist film. The Seashell and the Clergyman, which was originally banned in the UK, is a bizarre story of a priest's uncontrollable lust, directed by Germaine Dulac.
