Live Music & Film: The Lighthouse Keepers

28 Feb 2020 | GOMA | Cinema A

Presented as part of the cinema program 'The Noise of Waters' (17 January - 8 March 2020), Jean Grémillon’s The Lighthouse Keepers 1929 is an unseen classic of silent French cinema. The tale of a father and 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 French masterpiece.
