by Serge Bromberg
Retour de Flamme…in 3D! The brainchild of French film director and producer Serge Bromberg, this two-hour screening of restored silent films will be accompanied by the man himself on the piano.
Film buffs will love discovering to live music cinema treasures they never even knew existed.
An original format created by Serge Bromberg and Eric Lange in 1982 when they first brought cinematographic gems harking back to the first fifty years of film to public attention, the live event is a risky business as the first motion pictures were manufactured on highly flammable nitrate film—hence the name Retour de Flamme (Saved from the flames)!
The Indiana Jones of dusty reels and living memory of silent cinema, Serge Bromberg (a recent César winner for his film L'Enfer de Clouzot),will talk about 3D cinema that was first experimented in the 1930s.
His talent as pianist and raconteur of the history of cinema is sure to delight young and old alike. A fantastic opportunity to rediscover the multiple facets of the magic of film!
