The Magic Lantern Film Club was joined by the acclaimed soundscapers MINIMA at St Mary Redcliffe to produce one of the most anticipated cinemographic events of the year. It sold out and made over a thousand pounds for AWAMU!
St Mary Redcliffe was the perfect location, with the 12th century gothic Church providing a wonderfully atmospheric backdrop to the film. Nearly two hundred people came along and gathered in the pews for the evening. Tea and cake from the Black and White Cafe provided the perfect accompaniment…
Nosferatu was shot in 1922, loosely based on the story of Dracula. It tells the story of a German estate agent who is dispatched to sell a property to a mysterious count who lives in a Transylvanian castle. Upon reaching there, he notices something is strange about the count, and must battle to save his innocent wife from a terrible fate.
The silent film was really brought to life by the live musical accompaniment of Minima. With just four members, they created an amazing amount of atmosphere and created an unforgettable experience.
Thank you to everyone who came and supported us! We hope you had a fantastic evening.
