Cinema’s First Nasty Women: Silent Cinema Shorts with Live Music Featuring Dreamland Faces

April 4, 2023 @ 7:30 pm-9:30 pm

Here’s your chance to see “trailblazing examples of female energy, anger, transgression, rebellions and explosive hilarity in early cinema” (Silent London). Shining a spotlight on female rebellion, cross-dressing, gender burlesque, and slapstick comedy, these films are drawn from a new collection curated by Laura Horak, Elif Rongen-Kaynakci, and UMN’s Maggie Hennefeld. This screening, “oozing with every which sort of feminist imagery” (Maggie Hennefeld), is set to live, original music by Dreamland Faces (Karen Majewicz and Andy McCormick) with dynamic colorings from Northop’s own historic pipe organ (Molly Raben).

On-demand through Apr 9
