Saturday 8 June at 7pm
With live accompaniment from Neil Brand
Backed by the Communist Youth League to inspire a new generation of Cosmonauts and taking advice from a noted rocket scientist, this 1936 silent film was astonishingly ahead of its time in its depiction of space travel. Mixing live action with exquisite model and stop frame work, it tells the story of an elderly scientist who builds his own rocket and, accompanied by a young woman and a boy, flies to the moon and back.
Acclaimed composer Neil Brand will accompany the film with a newly composed piano score.
