SUNRISE: A SONG OF TWO HUMANS accompanied by The Meg Morley Trio at 1901 Arts Club (26 JUL 19:30):
A regular feature in discussions of the greatest movies ever made (ranking #5 in the latest Sight & Sound critics poll) SUNRISE: A SONG OF TWO HUMANS (1927) tells the deceptively simple tale of The Man (George O’Brien) and The Wife (Janet Gaynor), whose peaceful country life is shaken by the arrival of The Woman from the City (Margaret Livingston). Released at the very moment that silent cinema started to be swept away by the revolution of sound, F.W. Murnau’s ode to love has a fluid, dreamlike quality rarely captured before or since.
Before that, we have another absolute gem for you in the shape of THE GOAT (1921). One of Buster Keaton’s most surreal (and best!) short comedies, mixing action and romance with some of the very best visual gags ever committed to celluloid.
Providing an accompaniment worthy of these cinematic greats, we’re again extremely fortunate to be joined by Meg Morley on piano, Richard Sadler on double bass and Emiliano Caroselli on drums.
