PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. -- The Jacob Burns Film Center in Pleasantville will present a special "Not So Silent Cinema" performance featuring Buster Keaton's short films.
The show begins at 1 p.m. Saturday, April 12, and will feature new, original scores to accompany the classic Keaton short films.
"Stumbling through shooting galleries, trains, secret societies, and falling houses Buster Keaton delivers outrageous stunts and antics in four classic shorts screened with new original live music: "The High Sign"(1921), "The Goat"(1921), "Cops" (1922) and "One Week" (1920)," representatives said. "Keaton's outrageous stunts and deadpan delivery cemented his place in film history. Roger Ebert called him 'the greatest actor-director in the history of the movies.'"
"Not So Silent Cinema," is a project created by composer/arranger Brendan Cooney. The project began as a one-off performance of "Nosferatu" on Halloween.
