Silents, Please! Faust w/ live music

December 4, 2016
Hollywood Theatre 1449 Potomac Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA

As part of our monthly silent film series with live musical accompaniment, we are pleased to present FAUST with live music by Richard Nicol and Steve Rightnour as Pittsburgh Modular and Monorocket. Roger Ebert wrote that F.W. Murnau made two of the greatest films of the supernatural, "Nosferatu" (1922) and "Faust (1926)." Faust was F.W. Murnau's last German film, and directly afterward he moved to the US under contract to William Fox to direct Sunrise (1927). In this classic of silent cinema, the demon Mephisto (Emil Jannings) makes a bet with an archangel that a good man's soul can be corrupted. Mephisto sets his sights on the thoughtful old alchemist Faust (Gosta Ekman), who is desperately trying to save his village from a plague. He is able to help the villagers, thanks to Mephisto, but further dealings with the devil lead Faust on a decadent downward spiral. Can he redeem his soul before it's too late?
