Nitehawk’s LIVE SOUND CINEMA presents the Spanish silent film based on the tale of Snow White, BLANCANIEVES, with a live score by BLACK LODGE!
An evil step-mother, amnesia, and a band of bullfighting dwarfs transform the legendary story of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” into Blancanieves; Pablo Berger’s “love letter to European silent cinema.” Set in 1920s southern Spain, this silent black-and white modern film has our Snow White as a young female bullfighter fleeing her past and embarking on an adventure that will lead her towards a destiny unlike any other. Blancanieves was Spain’s official entry for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar for 2012.
Providing the live score to Blancanieves is Black Lodge, a collective of musicians led by guitarist/composer Geoff Gersh, who re-score films then perform live to them.
