Description

Our THIRD event in the 2018 "Riversdale Silent Classics Series" is one you absolutely can't miss! Straight from France, Alcoléa & cie will present their LIVE SCORE movie-concert based on the cinematographic works of Georges Méliès -- En Plein Dans l'Oeil (or, Right In The Eye)!

If fanciful mental constructs and abstract concepts were to become personified, it would be no surprise if they took the form of Georges Méliès. Considered the inventor of cinema by the Lumière brothers, Méliès is someone best-defined by superlatives. It took just a few years for this pioneer and entertainer of genius, gifted with an inventive and emblematic personality, to reveal the full extent of his visionary genius, before ending his life in poverty, entirely forgotten.

Drawing its inspiration from the fictional fantasy worlds of such featurettes as “Le voyage à travers l’impossible” (The Impossible Voyage), or the burlesque universe of shorts such as “L’équilibre impossible” (An Impossible Balancing Feat), the movie-concert En plein dans l’œil (Right in the Eye) presents a modern rendition of the poetic and playful universe of Georges Méliès by aptly serving both its images and its narrative.
