SYNOPSIS

KinoKonzert 05: Silent Film with Live Soundtrack For the fifth edition of its KinoKonzert series, the Goethe-Institut brings together a historic German horror film with a contemporary composer from Berlin. This is a unique opportunity to watch the rare cult flick Der Golem on the big screen accompanied by an original live score from electronic music producer Lucrecia Dalt. The Goethe-Institut presents this tour in close cooperation with its partners Sydney Film Festival, Dark Mofo, QAGOMA, NFSA, Astor Theatre, Liquid Architecture and Berlin Atonal. Lucrecia Dalt is a Berlin-based electronic musician and sound artist. Her work draws on a wealth of artistic and philosophical influences, including cinema, geotechnics, artificial intelligence, the ethics of listening and futuristic ideas. The Columbian-born producer has already released several solo albums and has toured extensively, playing festivals, galleries and clubs all over the world. Der Golem is a silent horror film from 1920, and a leading example of early German Expressionism. Based on a novel from 1914, Der Golem is set in a Jewish ghetto in 16th Century Prague. It tells the story of astrologer Rabbi who creates a clay figure that he brings to life with the assistance of a demon spirit and an amulet placed in the centre of the creature’s chest.
