Selected by Guy Maddin for live accompaniment by The Flushing Remonstrance

Join us for Angelic Lanterns, a special program of films personally selected by Guy Maddin for all-new scores composed and performed by The Flushing Remonstrance, NYC’s premiere group devoted to live film accompaniment.

Guy Maddin’s Cowards Bend The Knee is a “deliriously over-the-top blend of operatic melodrama, recycled Greek tragedy, motifs pilfered from film noir, and silent-film conventions” (Film Journal International), presented here along with his short films Blue Mountains Mystery Séance (world premiere screening), Send Me To The ‘Lectric Chair (US premiere), Odin’s Shield Maiden (NYC premiere), and Once A Chicken, Always A Chicken (NYC premiere), all with live accompaniment.
