Featured Screening: Screen Slate Presents AFTER DEATH: Music by Kevin Lynch at Vaudeville Park • RSVP on Facebook

Today Screen Slate presents its first show at Bushwick art space Vaudeville ParkAFTER DEATH: Music by Kevin Lynch, a unique musical performance alongside a 1915 silent masterpiece by Yevgeni Bauer

Infused with gothic-leaning symbolist influences, Bauer’s films represent some of the darkest, most accomplished psychological dramas of silent cinema. Beginning his career as both an accomplished photographer and set designer, Bauer eventually directed over 80 features renowned for their outstanding pictorial and technical achievements expressing dark, inward-looking social and psychological insight. After Death, adapted from a story by Ivan Turgenev, concerns a student whose romantic fixation with a beautiful young stage actress deepens after her suicide. Bauer’s staple themes of decadence, obsession and death are expressed through intricately choreographed cinematography and rich mise-en-scène that a century on maintain the power to enrapture viewers. As Kenneth Turan wrote, “Distinctly Russian in their brooding mood yet universal in their remarkable psychological sophistication, Bauer’s films have been justly called the work of the greatest director you’ve never heard of.”

Kevin Lynch is a Berklee College of Music graduate who plays drums in Brooklyn bands Grooms and Strange Rivals, the later of which played Screen Slate’s six month party and provided an outstanding live score for Dementia 13 at Spectacle in October. Tonight’s soundtrack will comprise electronic instruments, loops and effects. The show begins at 8:00 pm with $5 admission.
