Live Music + Film

Directed by Hanns Walter Kornblum with a score performed live by Coupler

In 1925, German director Hanns Walter Kornblum set out to create a film unlike any that had come before. His aim was a film that would serve as both a summation of all the astronomical knowledge available at the time and a dreamy investigation of what wonders might await humanity with the advent of space travel.

With the help of fifteen special effects technicians and nine cameramen, Kornblum’s film is a technical marvel, one that revels in the beauty and mysteries of the universe, reminiscent of Carl Sagan’s Cosmos more than 50 years later. The film will be accompanied by a live scored performed by Coupler, a Nashville-based ambient electronic group. 1925, Germany, DCP, silent with live score, 91 minutes. Appropriate for all ages.

$9 for Non-Members | $7 for Members
