Feast Film Nights — Orphée + Soundtrack from Alex Paterson (The Orb) — Sat 12th Dec


Jean Cocteau’s update of the Orph­eus myth depicts a fam­ous poet (Jean Marais), scorned by the Left Bank youth, and his love for both his wife, Eury­dice (Marie Déa), and a mys­ter­i­ous prin­cess (Maria Cas­arès). Seek­ing inspir­a­tion, the poet fol­lows the prin­cess from the world of the liv­ing to the land of the dead, through Cocteau’s fam­ous mirrored portal. Orpheus’s peer­less visu­al poetry and dream­like storytelling rep­res­ent the legendary Cocteau at the height of his powers.

And, as if this wasn’t enough of a feast, Alex Pater­son (of The Orb (and wnbc.london) fame), has put togeth­er a brand new soundtrack for the film. This is a one off, unique com­pos­i­tion by him and can only be heard at this screen­ing. This really will make it a spe­cial event, don’t miss this one..
