Play button icon

The Icelandic neo-classical string group perform their latest project, a melancholic and haunting soundtrack, live to a screening of ‘Juve Contre Fantômas’, one of the 1913 Fantômas silent series.

Exploring the meeting points of contemporary classical, electronic and pop composition, their score enhances the eerie darkness in the classic 1913 silent thriller directed by Louis Feuillade. Ethereal and suspenseful, built on a delicate structure of pounding rhythms, live strings, percussion and electronics, Fantômas sees the ensemble developing their sound.

The performance will begin promptly at the advertised start time of 8pm

Running time: 65 minutes

Silent film 'Salomé' (1923), adapted from Oscar Wilde’s play, has become a cult favourite. We spoke to musician Haley Fohr about its relevance today as a story of a woman rebelling against the male gaze, and its iconic status as a Queer film.
