Special events 2020
March 11, 11am – 1pm, Auditorium di Piazza della Libertà, Bergamo
Once more Kino Club offers a selection of classics of the silent film era, live scored on piano: a unique opportunity to relive the masterpieces of one of the most important animators of early cinema and a valuable learning occasion for the young generations, capable of conjuring the same sense of awe born from the magical combination of live music and moving pictures.
Live scoring on piano of 2 films: La Petite parade (1928, 23’09 ’’) and L’horloge magique (1928, 32’56 ’’) by Władysław Starewitch, puppet animation pioneer, played live by Gerardo Chimini.
March 9, 11am – 1pm, Capitol Cinema, Bergamo
Le voyage du prince, in the presence of the director
The latest work by director Jean-François Laguionie, Le voyage du prince is a film that, by focusing on intense and sensitive social issues, has the extraordinary ability to convey hope through a language stripped of any excess. Set in a nineteenth century in full economic effervescence, Laguionie moves its protagonists on traditionally made backdrops: the attention to detail and the refined spatial construction make Le voyage du prince one of the most fascinating films available today.
