Live Music/Silent Film: THE WIND with The Invincible Czars
The band: “A rare breed…. renowned for eclectic and sophisticated compositions.”
A cult favorite from Austin travels north to create a live soundtrack to the classic THE WIND. The Inivincible Czars fuse a stunning array of music into a smart, atmopheric sound; and Victor Seastrom’s classic film follows a strong woman (Lillian Gish) who moves to a god-forsaken town, only to find herself in increasingly difficult circumstances, including the near-constantly howling wind. The screenplay is by the legendary Frances Marion. (U.S., 1928, 95m, digital video)

An Evening with Jon Jost
One of America’s most important trailblazing independent filmmakers, Jon Jost began making 16mm films in 1963. He has made 38 feature-length films, all of which he has conceived, written, photographed, directed and edited; most of these he also produced. He has made more than 30 short works and the large-scale, seven-screen installation work, TRINITY. Jost was the subject of a MoMA retrospective that subsequently traveled to venues around the world. Jost will show his latest work, COMING TO TERMS, a meditation on family and mortality that Jonathan Rosenbaum called Jost’s “greatest feature … (bringing together his) exquisitely meditative sense of visual surface and texture with his tragic sense of how America has been losing its soul … geology and psychology meet on the same devastated terrain — the wasted world that we all currently inhabit.” The film stars the legendary filmmaker James Benning. (U.S., 2013, 85m)
