No color. No sound. No movie?

How about we add in a live orchestra… Sounding a little better?

And have the event at the home of silent films… You interested yet?

Did I mention the film is showing at one of the best festivals to hit this side of the Finger Lakes?

In the upcoming week, FLEFF is bringing back some of the Ithacan silent film culture of the 1920s with October. In the 1920s, the natural beauty of Ithaca inspired silent filmmakers to create works of art often in the form of the cliffhanger serial. Although October does not take place anywhere near Ithaca, the town’s history is easily seen in the form of the silent film.

The classic Russian film premiered in 1928 under the direction of Sergei Eisenstein and Grigori Aleksandrov. October celebrates with dramatization the 1917 October Russian Revolution. To add to the drama, the Cloud Chamber Orchestra will accompany the film with live music.

Perhaps, there will be no color, but there will definitely be sound and a movie you do not want to miss. So what do you say? Put on your Sunday best and join FLEFF Sunday, April 7th at Cinemapolis for October featuring the Cloud Chamber Orchestra.

Which other films are you interested in seeing this year?
