A Silent Film!

Bowdoin College, Brunswick, Maine

Please join me as I improvise a live score for the 1922 silent film “The Seventh Day”. A rare film, “The Seventh Day” was an “A-list” production, filmed on location in New Harbor Maine in 1922. It’s a story of the perennially problematic relationship between local Mainers and wealthy “from away-ers”. It’s fun to see shots of Maine from 100 years ago, and I’ll be valiantly manning the keys trying to come up with the perfect soundtrack “on the spot”.

The event is free and open to the public, though seating is limited, so plan to get there early. The film will be introduced by Tanya Goldman, who is currently teaching a course at Bowdoin in film history, which includes this film.
