Champagne Screening: Live Music & Film
'The Lighthouse Keepers' 1929
6.15PM Fri 28 Feb 2020
GOMA | Cinema Foyer | Ticketed
Screening as part of the ‘The Noise of Waters’ cinema program, Jean Grémillon’s The Lighthouse Keepers 1929 is an unseen classic of silent French cinema. The tale of a father and an ailing son working in an isolated lighthouse on the coast of Brittany, it is a groundbreaking portrait of madness that recalls the expressionistic genius of Robert Wiene’s The Cabinet of Dr Caligari 1920. The film will screen from a rare 35mm print, courtesy of the National Film Archive of Japan. New wave band Corporate Vibes will accompany the film with a newly composed contemporary score that speaks to the dark majesty of this singular French masterpiece.
