Pandora’s Box

Pandora’s Box

Die Büchse der Pandora, from http://www.watershed.co.uk

That excellent venue the Watershed in Bristol is marking its twenty-fifth anniversary with a screening of G.W. Pabst’s quintessential silent Pandora’s Box (Die Büchse der Pandora), starring Louise Brooks. The screening sees the premiere of a new orchestral score by Paul Lewis, and will be held at Colston Hall, and hosted by actor Paul McGann. The score will performed by twenty-five members of the Royal Ballet Sinfonia, and conducted by Lewis himself. The show takes place on 25 September, and is a joint collaboration between the Watershed, Bristol Silents and the Pordenone Silent Film Festival. Further details are available from the Watershed site. Print and score will then feature the following month at Pordenone.
