The Ancient Law, with Alicia Svigals and Donald Sosin
With live original music composed and played by renowned klezmer violinist Alicia Svigals and silent film music legend, pianist Donald Sosin, Tompkins Corners will present The Ancient Law Cine-Concert on Saturday, August 24th at 7:30pm.
Ewald André Duponts 1923 silent film, Das alte Gesetz, was digitally restored in 2017 by the Deutsche Kinemathek with generous support from the Sunrise Foundation for Education and the Arts. Captured magnificently by cinematographer Theodor Sparkuhl, The Ancient Law is an outstanding example of the creativity of Jewish filmmakers in 1920's Germany, and paints a complex portrait of the tension between tradition and modernity.
