When the screen comes truly alive

Discover two masterpieces of silent cinema by Henri Storck: Images d’Ostende (1929) and Misère au Borinage (1933). According to the Belgian director, “silent cinema had developed perfect narrative forms and remarkable filming techniques”. Storck embraced this medium to deliver poetic, graphic and aesthetic images, and to exploit the penetrating power of editing, intertitles and narrative. To support and amplify Storck’s creation, Stéphane Orlando has recently composed a score, pitched at just the right distance from the visual work, and performed on stage by the Ensemble Musiques Nouvelles, which he will conduct for the occasion. Come and celebrate cinema, live music and the history of our regions in the Henry Le Bœuf Hall, Victor Horta’s architectural masterpiece inaugurated in 1929.
