Earth (Zemlya) Silent Film, live soundtrack by Stefan Cassomenos @WWAF2017

Melbourne pianist and composer Stefan Cassomenos performs a new live soundtrack to Alexander Dovzhenko’s 1930 silent film Earth
St Ambrose Hall, 18 Templeton St, Woodend VIC 3442, Australia

Film by Alexander Dovzhenko
Music by Stefan Cassomenospiano

Melbourne pianist and composer Stefan Cassomenos performs a new live soundtrack to Alexander Dovzhenko’s 1930 silent film Earth, hailed as one of the greatest films of all time. Amid a backdrop of heightened political tension surrounding the process of collectivisation and the ushering in of a new social era, Dovzhenko’s impressionistic response lyrically and poetically depicts the lives of Ukrainian farmers. The film uses the seasonal tilling of the fertile soil as a metaphor for the cycles of life, death and rebirth.

All tickets $20

Supported by Steinway and Sons & Exclusive Piano Group
