The Israel and Golda Koschitzky Centre for Jewish Studies, together with the Austrian Embassy in Ottawa, will be hosting a two-day cinematic extravaganza on Sunday, May 26 and Monday, May 27, when we will be showing two restored silent films from interwar Austria: "Moon of Israel [Die Sklavenkönigin]" and "The City without Jews [Die Stadt ohne Juden]." These films will be accompanied by live piano music composed for them by pianist/composer Gerhard Gruber.
Moon of Israel [Die Sklavenkönigin] (a retelling of the Exodus story) will be shown on May 26th at 2:00pm.
The City without Jews [Die Stadt ohne Juden] (an eerie prediction of what would soon happen in Europe) will be shown on May 27th at 7:00pm.
Admission is free, but seats are limited. Register at https://silentclassics.eventbrite.ca
Take the TTC directly to the venue at the York University station. Or come by car. Freeparking will be validated at the Student Services Parking Garage.
Come see the one, the other, or both. We look forward to sharing this unique experience with you!
