Cinemart proudly presents a selection of classic early short films from cinema legend Charlie Chaplin accompanied by a live score performed by local musicians Benjamin Walsh (The Bird, Orkestra of the Underground) and Shenzo Gregorio (Fourplay).
These two multi-talented instrumentalists play an impressive array of instruments, working tirelessly to create a two-person Orchestra.
This unique event celebrates the genius of cinema legend Chaplin, and his ground breaking comedy which remains relevant to audiences of all ages 100 years on.
Cinemart explores the art of cinema and screen culture through special events and workshops including the live cinema experience series celebrating the silent film era. Silent film was never silent. Before sound recording was introduced into the process of filmmaking, silent films would almost always be accompanied by live music, often improvised, dating back to the very first public projection of movies by the Lumiere brother in 1985.
