Silent Films/Loud Music: Within Our Gates

Comfort Station, Elastic Arts, and Homeroom jointly present a canonical film as part of Comfort Station’s Silent Films/Loud Music Series on May 12th at Elastic Arts. The silent film Within Our Gates (1920) by Oscar Devereaux Micheaux will be screened with accompanying original music by Chicago composers and performers Paul Giallorenzo and Ben Lamar Gay. Micheaux, an author, film director and independent producer of more than 44 films, is regarded as the first ever major African-American feature filmmaker. 

The Chicago group VAD will also share the evening with Paul and Ben, scoring the short film Light of Faith (1922).

$10 cover to benefit the artists.
