Grab a blanket and join us for the outdoor screening event of the year.
Last year East End Film Festival took the Silent London screening of the year award and this year ambition knows no bounds as we combine surreal Argentinian cinema with a new soundtrack commission and a world premiere contemporary dance performance.
Argentinian director Esteban Sapir’s 2007 film La Antena is the black and white tale of an entire city that has lost its voice. Mr. TV, the owner of the city’s only television channel, is carrying out a sinister, secret plan to subject all of the city’s inhabitants to his evil will – forever.
Accompanying the film’s mysterious and haunting visuals will be gothic pop band Esben and the Witch. Nominated in the BBC Sound of 2011 poll and winners of the Q award for ‘Next Big Thing’ in the same year, this is a unique opportunity to be part of the world premiere performance of Esben and the Witch’s newly commissioned score.
Setting the scene for Esben and the Witch’s atmospheric performance, the London premiere of contemporary dance piece The Intention, performed by East London dance company Neon Dance, will be led by world-renowned choreographer Adrienne Hart. Inspired by ‘The Invention of Morel’, a novel by Adolfo Bioy Casares, ‘The Intention’ explores a world of disjointed presences; where the playback of a recording of events takes on a greater reality than the continued existence of its subjects.
A City Without A Voice is set to be a festival highlight and there are limited seats available, so bring your cushion and grab a front row seat for this unmissable event.
