Score composed and performed: Peter Coldham (piano)
Performed and recorded at Hackney Attic, London, 2013
France, 1902. Dir. Georges Méliès. Starring Georges Méliès
Possibly the first science-fiction film and arguable Méliès’ greatest cinematic achievement, this is one of the oldest films we show. A group of Astronomers build a rocket ship which will send them to the Moon. The film explores ideas of travel and discovery at the turn of the century, and has been revisited by generation after generation of filmmakers and musicians alike. If you are a fan of Jules Verne or steampunk you’ll love Le Voyage Dans La Lune.

GERMANY 1920, Dir. Robert Wiene, Starring Werner Krauss, Conrad Veidt, Lil Dagover
