DNR Film Club: February Program – Musicals 
During 5-7th of February we present Sounds of Silence – a silent film/live music festival, hosted by DNR for the second year. Our regular film program will therefore celebrate the bond of music and the moving image with four musicals that are among the greatest ever made in the genre. 

The Tales of Hoffmann (Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, 1951)
Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger create a phantasmagoric marriage of cinema and opera in this one-of-a-kind take on a classic story. In Jacques Offenbach’s fantasy opera The Tales of Hoffmann, a poet dreams of three women—a mechanical performing doll, a bejeweled siren, and the consumptive daughter of a famous composer—all of whom break his heart in different ways. Powell and Pressburger’s feverishly romantic adaptation is a feast of music, dance, and visual effects, and one of the most exhilarating opera films ever produced.
