This fall favorite returns in October and runs until early December, with live accompaniment on the piano by world-renowned musician and composer Philip C. Carli. An exploration of the documentary form in the silent period is followed by a focus on national filmographies, and includes films by such luminaries as Luis Buñuel and F. W. Murnau. Rochester’s rich history of both cinema and live music meet every Tuesday at the Dryden Theatre as archival film is paired with the best film accompaniment the world has to offer.
