Hysteria, Hypnosis, and Hallucination: Silent Cinema Shorts with Live Music Featuring Dreamland Faces

October 18 @ 7:30 pm

On-demand through Oct 31
In the early 20th century, filmmakers were frequently compared to hypnotists, enticing hysterical movie audiences with wild collective hallucinations! In these rarely seen films, a woman is hypnotized by a Svengali, a jealous lover practices tele-hypnosis to defeat his rival, an overworked housemaid has sleeping sickness, a female coach drive can’t believe her eyes, an obsessive inventor gives us a sneak preview of Zoom, and cinematography offers a miraculous cure to hysterical amnesia. With live, original music by Dreamland Faces (Karen Majewicz and Andy McCormick, featuring Molly Raben on Northrop’s historic pipe organ) this singular program is a must-see for film buffs, music lovers, and the historically-curious.
