Hysteria, Hypnosis, and Hallucination: Silent Cinema Shorts with Live Music Featuring Dreamland Face

TUES. 10/18 7:30 PM. $21. All ages.

If you’re a fan of film, a music lover, or love history—join UMN professor Maggie Hennefeld for a screening of seven films showcasing the beauty and history of black-and-white films. In the early 20th century, filmmakers were often compared to hypnotists who moved audiences into a trance with a collective hallucination, and Hennefeld’s curation of rarely-seen films explores this theme, with films such as At the Hypnotist’s, Hypnotizing the Hypnotist, Rosalie Has Sleeping Sickness, and more. Each film will be scored with live, original music by Dreamland Faces, featuring Molly Raben on Northrop’s historic pipe organ.
