Louise Brooks in Pandora's Box

Pandora's Box

Music by Club Foot Orchestra with SF Conservatory of Music LIVE at the Paramount on Saturday, May 6!

On May 6, 2023, the Club Foot Orchestra will join forces with San Francisco Conservatory of Music to accompany G.W. Pabst’s 1929 masterpiece Pandora’s Box at Oakland’s magnificent Paramount Theatre. 

 San Francisco Silent Film Festival will screen the restoration by Angela Holm and David Ferguson in a DCP from the Deutsche Kinemathek.

 The film stars the radiant Louise Brooks whose mesmerizing performance as the sexually adventurous Lulu catapulted her to worldwide fame. 

Here is praise for Brooks through the years: 

 An actress who needed no directing, but could move across the screen causing the work of art to be born by her mere presence.—Lotte H. Eisner 

 Those who have seen her can never forget her. She is the modern actress par excellence. . . . Her art is so pure that it becomes invisible.—Henri Langlois 

 Her youthful admirers see in her an actress of brilliance, a luminescent personality, and a beauty unparalleled in film history.—Kevin Brownlow 

 One of the most mysterious and potent figures in the history of the cinema . . . she was one of the first performers to penetrate to the heart of screen acting.—David Thomson

Info and Tickets

Prem Sanyas

The score for Prem Sanyas is composed by Richard Marriott and Pandit Krishna Bhatt, both former students of Usted Ali Akbar Khan. It is structured as a Concerto for Sitar and Ensemble, using North Indian raga material consistent with the ideas and emotions of the film. The ensemble draws its musicians from San Francisco's Club Foot Orchestra, a group founded by Marriott, which has composed and performed with classic silent films since 1987. The musicians are Bhatt (sitar), Michael Lewis (tabla), Beth Custer (clarinet), Alisa Rose (violin), Jessica Ivry (cello), and Marriott (conductor, euphonium, flute). 

Marriott's composition and collaboration with Krishna Bhatt is supported by the San Francisco Arts Commission and Margaret P. Dorfman.
