FILIBUS d. Mario Roncoroni, 1915 + Live electronic score by Sam Enthoven & Arkadiusz Potyka at ArtHouse Crouch End (01 MAY 15:30).

“FILIBUS is a 1915 Italian silent adventure film directed by Mario Roncoroni and written by the future science fiction author Giovanni Bertinetti. It features Valeria Creti as the title character, a mysterious sky pirate who makes daring heists with her technologically advanced airship.”

“We are delighted to welcome back to The Arthouse, Sam Enthoven and Arkadiusz Potyka who bring electronic sound to silent cinema. Ark plays bass and other noise machines; Sam plays found sounds and a unique Russian instrument from the dawn of electronic music – the theremin. From minimal elements (and no laptops) they conjure up a richly atmospheric soundworld, helping audiences find new life and meaning in some of the world’s finest old films.” (ArtHouse Crouch End)
