The legendary Cinema 16 avant-garde film society is making a comeback. And it’s making a big splash in a big way with this special music and film performance as a benefit show for the Millennium Film Workshop.

Curator Molly Surno is pairing modern music acts with classic cinema for an innovative and once-in-a-lifetime auditory and visual experience. Performances at this event include:

  1. Maya Deren‘s groundbreaking avant-garde classic At Land will screen accompanied by a live performance by Forma, a minimal-synth trio out of Brooklyn.
  2. A Wild Roomer, one of the films directed by and starring silent film star Charley Bowers, will have a soundtrack by Nick Yulman, a Brooklyn-based sound artist.
  3. The 1976 Japanese puppet animated film Dojoji Temple will have musical accompaniment by Ablehearts, the performing name of Brooklyn sound and video artist Thomas Arsenault.
  4. Lastly, one of Busby Berkeley’s musical spectacles, Gold Diggers of 1935, will have music by singer and artist Joseph Keckler.

For a taste of this event, here is a segment from Dojoji Temple:
