Sound of Silent Film 2012

Integrating musical creativity into everyday life

SOSF_2012_POSTER_smallACM’s Sound of Silent Film Festival is the only film festival that features modern silent films screened to live music, composed especially for the films by Chicago composers. This year’s festival features a new score for La Jetee, the classic film that was the inspiration for Terry Gilliam‘s Twelve Monkeys.

Other films include the hilarious Waiting Room by Dutch filmmaker Jos Stelling, Chantal Akerman‘s masterful Hotel Monterrey and, as part of a collaboration with Berlin-based Moving Silence, ACM is proud to present Egg Love by German filmmaker Birgit Moeller.

Now that the Chopin Theater has a liquor license you can enjoy the show with the tasty beverage of your choice.
