#QueerHorrorNights presents a very special event at the historic Rio Cinema – our Halloween Monsters Ball: NIGHTBREED (28 OCT 22:00+).

THE PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC d. Carl Theodor Dreyer, 1928 + Live electronic soundtrack by Sam Enthoven & Arkadiusz Potyka at ArtHouse Crouch End (25 SEP 15:00).

“One of the most emotional film experiences of any era, Carl Theodor Dreyer’s 1928 THE PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC is a miracle of the cinema, an enigmatic and profoundly moving work that merges the worlds of the viewer and of saintly Joan herself into one shared experience of hushed delirium.”

“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)
