HAPPY HOUR in TASTE Courtyard: 5:30 pm

SCREENING & LIVE PERFORMANCE: 8 pm
Presented by Arts Brookfield, UnSilent Cinema pairs outdoor screenings of classic, silent films with contemporary scores, several of which are world premieres, performed live by their composers: electronic musicians Daedelus, Jimmy Tamborello, Callie, and Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith as well as guitar masters Alvin Youngblood Hart and Marc Ribot. The film screenings with live performances are free to the public and part of Arts Brookfield’s mission to bring Brookfield’s public spaces to life through visual and performing arts.
A bridge from the early 20th century to today, UnSilent Cinema connects film masterpieces with contemporary music culture. The series grew out of the New York Guitar Festival’s Silent Films/Live Guitars series, which has commissioned outstanding musicians to compose and perform scores to accompany classic and poignant silent films since 2004.
Arts Brookfield has partnered with David Spelman, the NYGF’s founder, and LA-based concert producer Rum & Humble, to expand the artistic vision of the series, embracing a wider spectrum of musical genres and producing an annual event in Downtown Los Angeles.
