Tomorrow (Oct. 23) at 7:30pm, Cinefamily hosts a screening of the 1924 silent German Expressionist horror film The Hands of Orlac. The film, which tells the story of a pianist whose hands are replaced by those of a murderer, will be accompanied by a live score from pianist/composer Hauschka. The artist often creates imaginative sounds by incorporating found objects into the strings and mallets of his piano. This live score was specifically commissioned for Nightmare City, a festival created by The Cinefamily, Cinespia and Elijah Wood’s Woodshed Horror Company.
The Hands of Orlac was directed by Robert Wiene and stars Conrad Vliet (both of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari). Tickets are $15 for non-members.
