Presented by Northern Silents
A silent film with live, improvised score by Frame Ensemble.
One of the great silent films, GW Pabst’s Pandora’s Box is renowned for its sensational storyline, sparkling Weimar-period setting and the legendary, lead performance from its iconic star Louise Brooks. Following the rise and fall of Lulu (Brooks), a spirited but innocent showgirl whose sheer sexual magnetism wreaks havoc on the lives of men and women alike, the film was controversial in its day, then underappreciated for decades. Pandora’s Box now stands as an incredibly modern movie, and few stars of any era dazzle as bright as Louise Brooks.
Frame Ensemble has been acclaimed for its improvised silent film scores and they will bring this remarkable film to live with an original, spontaneous musical accompaniment.
