Exciting stuff is happening this week for Enzian's summer junior filmmaking camp and film series we affectionately call KIDFEST. If you're in driving distance of the Orlando area, you don't want to miss the Tuesday, 7/24, Buster Keaton program at 12:30 PM featuring rare 35mm screenings of STEAMBOAT BILL, JR. (1928) and COPS (1922).
While STEAMBOAT BILL is a silent feature with its own music score on the print, we are thrilled to be able to present live musical accompaniment for the completely silent short comedy classic that precedes it, COPS. Local musicians Alex Katsaros and his Yanbo band mate Alessandro De Angelis have graciously agreed to whip up a live music score that is sure to delight the kids and everyone else in attendance.
In the words of FilmSlam co-host and co-producer Brian Feldman, here's some info on Alex K. and Alex D:
"Alessandro De Angelis (keyboards) and Alex Katsaros (hand percussion) are long-time members of Orlando's multicultural music scene, heard most notably around town in their jazz-fusion improvisational band "Yanbo." As musicians, they always look to challenge themselves musically in a way that is pleasant for all to hear--hence, accompaniment for a world-class silent film at Enzian Theater is one such experimental journey they are honored to embark upon in honor of KIDFEST. (Visit them at myspace.com/yanbomusic)."
So get creative with that lunch hour and don't dare miss this once-in-a-lifetime event. Gee, and it's only $5 too!
