Pandora Tour Dates

Dir. Georg Wilhelm Pabst, Germany 1929, 133 mins. Cert PG
Silent film with a new live score

Composed and performed by Jóhann Jóhannsson and Hildur Gudnadóttir… “…at that time a dangerously shocking film. It still remains an intensely sexy one.” [The Guardian]
“Supremely evocative compositions” [BBC music]

GW Pabst’s 1929 silent film follows the rise and fall of the captivating, amoral young prostitute Lulu and her various ill-fated relationships, brought to life by the inimitable Louise Brooks.

Part of an international renaissance of silent film, this special screening sees award-winning Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson (Fordlandia), cellist and composer Hildur Gudnadóttir (Múm/Throbbing Gristle), and turntablist Philip Jeck combine forces.

The brand new live soundtrack plays with the film’s volatile energy, Weimar-era recordings and the iconic figure of Louise Brooks.
