Silent Music Revival, Thursday 1/17 at 9pm

The Milwaukee installment of the Silent Music Revival presents local musicians Brandon Miller and John Larkin of Loup and Ylla, improvising dynamic, electric soundscapes to Dimitri Kirsanoff’s Ménilmontant (1926). Widely considered his masterpiece, the film exhibits several stylistic firsts including the exclusion of intertitles and the use of double exposure, communicating entirely through poetic, avant-garde imagery. Kirsanoff leads his audience through mesmerizing mazes of near-abstract montage and frantic bursts of ingeniously layered imagery to construct to the distressed mental states of his characters creating an overwhelming and powerful film unaffected by the passage of nearly a century. The ethereal, musical accompaniment will undoubtedly enhance the film’s resonance and provide an experience not to be missed.
