Unquestionably one of the most important films of all time, Nanook of the North by Robert Flaherty portrays a year in the life of Nanook, a once legendary Inuit and his family. Retake Productions is proud to present a new live musical accompaniment to excerpts from this and four other silent film classics; Un Chien Andalou by Salvador Dali and Luis Bunuel, The General by Buster Keaton, Regen by Jors Ivens, and Earth by Alexander Dovzhenko
Retake Productions (www.retakeproductions.com) is a music production company that was founded in 2007 to create music that enhances great films and exposes them to a broad variety of people. Their goal is to develop a symbiotic relationship between film and music that puts traditional, classical elements in juxtaposition with a post-modern, jazz-based palate. The performance of the original scores will accompany the films and will feature live violin, cello, trumpet, guitar, acoustic bass, and drums.–
