Part of Summer Music & Movies 2012, Open Field 2012

Tonight’s live music + film program at the Walker’s Open Field begins at dusk (approximately 8:45 pm).

Music: Brute Heart

“You can say they sound mystic, Middle Eastern, psychedelic, kaleidoscopic…. But there is also something so complete in their rhythms, all warm glow and velvet, mesmerizing and dreamy in the repetition.” —City Pages

Known for their primal rhythms and darkly mysterious songs, beloved locals Brute Heart (with a specially expanded lineup of players) will present a new live score for The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, commissioned by the Walker. This evening’s 89.3 The Current DJ: Dave Campbell.

Movie: The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari

Directed by Robert Weine
This German Expressionist masterpiece was the ultimate pioneer of the narrative dream twist. Told in flashback with stylistic chiaroscuro, this dark film takes us into a labyrinth of Dr. Caligari’s sideshow, where he mysteriously controls a soothsaying, sleepwalking specter. The amazing set design lends an eerie ambience. 1920, video, 72 minutes; part of the Walker’s Ruben/Bentson Film and Video Collection.
