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..
