Silent film "It" with live piano score [Robert Bruce Music]

Catch a screening of the 1927 Silent Film "It" starring Clara Bow with a Live Piano Score played by Composer Robert Bruce.

Based on a Novella by Elinor Glyn that was originally serialized in Cosmopolitan magazine, this was the film that turned actress Clara Bow into a major star and led people to henceforth label her "The IT Girl". A brilliant and well-played drama - light comedy that allows Clara Bow to really shine, "It" was, of course, the 1920s code word for sex appeal.

Eva Hesse (1936-1970) is one of America’s foremost
postwar artists. Her pioneering sculptures, using latex,
fiberglass, and plastics, helped establish the
post-minimalist movement. Dying of a brain tumor at

its brevity, is dense with complex, intriguing works
that defy easy categorization.

Silent Film Series - The Cameraman [Theatre Aquarius]

 

 

 

 

Silent Film Series
With Live Piano Scores by Robert Bruce

The Cameraman
(1928) starring Buster Keaton
Saturday, February 11, 2017 – 8:00 pm

In his last truly great silent film, Buster Keaton pursues a romance with the secretary at “MGM Newsreels” while simultaneously trying to establish himself there as a cameraman.  The film beautifully captures sections of New York City in 1928 and, as is usual for Keaton in his prime, is filled with many brilliant gags and scenarios.

Jean-Michel Basquiat: 
The Radiant Child

Tamra Davis | USA | 2010 | Documentary | 93min | 14A

This thoroughly engaging documentary, charts the meteoric rise and fall of
the inimitable New York painter with rock-star status and one of the leading
lights of late-20th-century art. The film is centered on a rare interview that
director and friend Tamra Davis shot with Basquiat over twenty years ago.
Much can be gleaned from insider interviews and archival footage, but it is
Basquiat's own words and work that powerfully convey the mystique and
allure of both the artist and the man.

on Haida Gwaii (the Queen Charlotte Islands). Fluent in painting, screen

Haida Gwaii: 
On the Edge of the World

Canada | 2015 | Documentary | 74min | PG

At a stunning low altitude, aerial cinematography sweeps over the Haida Gwaii, 
a breathtakingly beautiful archipelago off the British Columbia Northwest Coast. 
It takes us into the geographic heart of the Haida Gwaiian people, who thrived 
for more than 10,000 years until they were decimated through disease, rampant 
commercial logging and industrial over-fishing. Today, the Haida Nation is 
recovering, exerting their sovereignty and winning battles against unsustainable 
logging and fishing.

Troublemakers: 
The Story of Land Art

USA | 2015 | Documentary | 72min

Troublemakers unearths the history of land art in the tumultuous late 1960s 
and early 1970s. The film features a cadre of renegade New York artists that 
sought to transcend the limitations of painting and sculpture by producing 
earthworks on a monumental scale in the desolate desert spaces of the 
American southwest. Today these works remain impressive not only for the 
sheer audacity of their makers but also for their out-sized ambitions to break 
free from traditional norms. Rare footage and interviews which unveil the 
enigmatic lives and careers of storied artists Robert Smithson (Spiral Jetty), 
Walter De Maria (The Lightning Field) and Michael Heizer (Double Negative); 
a headstrong troika that established the genre.
