More Art premieres NYsferatu: Symphony of a Century by Andrea Mastrovito, a spectacular, hand-animated, silent film that combines music and community engagement to create a powerful and poignant statement about the horrors of the unknown and the inspiring search for liberty.
Resetting Friedrich W. Murnau’s classic 1922 film Nosferatu in contemporary New York City, Mastrovito and his team of 12 artists have created over 35,000 original drawings to replicate the beautifully eerie flickering shutter effect of early cinema. The re-imagined storyline and title cards of NYsferatu were made in collaboration with recent immigrants and English-as-new-language learners. The film is accompanied by musical improvisations by The Dick Valentine Vampyre Jamboree, featuring Dick Valentine of Electric Six and James Wells and Quinn English of The Gay Blades.
The movie starts at dusk, generally around 8:30 p.m.. Film runs 65 mins.
Free popcorn. Beverages and snacks available for purchase.
