Silent film with live music
MAN WITH A MOVIE CAMERA (dir. Dziga Vertov, 1929)
LAURÈNE DURANTEL Double bass, piano, voice
Ranked 8th in Sight and Sound Critics Poll of the Top 10 Films of All Time!
This groundbreaking documentary film from 1929 follows city life in the Soviet Union through the course of a single day, complete with thriving industries and crowded streets. But it’s also an engaging, often humorous, pioneering film about making a film that had a profound influence on the development of cinematic art.
Ensemble 360’s dynamic and creative double bass player, Laurène Durantel, presents a new soundtrack to this film that also draws on her additional skills as a pianist and vocalist.
This event also includes an introduction from Craig Brandist, Professor of Cultural Theory and Intellectual History at the University of Sheffield.
Professor Brandist has spent much of his career working on Revolutionary Russia and the Soviet Union and teaches European Cinema and Russian Culture in the School of Languages and Cultures.
A joint event between Music in the Round and the University of Sheffield Festival of Arts and Humanities. For more details about other Arts and Humanities Festival events please see www.sheffield.ac.uk/festivalah
