vintage silent movie, contemporary live score

Sun 21 April // 19:30 / Cinema

Tickets: £7/5

The Earth recieves mysterious messages from outer space and a daydreaming scientist draws up plans for a voyage to Mars where a destiny awaits him as the lover of the beautiful Aelita, Queen Of Mars.
The constructivist sets and futuristic costumes were influential at the time and remain striking still now, this is the film that introduced the now well worn alien obsession with the Earth passtime of kissing trope.
Featuring a live experimental score by PHiD
