Sound of Silent Film - Anthology Film Archives



Preview Some of the Films!

Friday, June 7 8:00 pm
Saturday, June 8 8:00 pm

ACM's popular Sound of Silent Film Festival features newly composed musical scores performed live to modern silent films.  Long a sold-out event in Chicago, we're bringing it to the Anthology in New York City for two shows featuring the very best movies we've shown over the past eight years.

The films include Martin Scorsese's anti-Vietnam war classic The Big Shave, Gus Van Sant's First Kiss, Michael Dudok de Witt's Oscar winning animated film Father and Daughter, Alexander Payne's Carmen, a hilarious spoof of the famous opera, and many more.

All of the scores are by living composers, many of whom will be present for the event.  Two nights only!

Friday, June 7 and Saturday June 8 - 8:00 PM
