Due to the Corona virus and government regulations aimed at stopping the virus we are unfortunately forced to cancel the Sounds of Silence Festival 2020. We will try to reschedule the fesival to a later date. Ticket buyers will be informed about the options regarding ticket refunds. 

Bring your own food!
The first film this Sunday ends at 18.00 and the second and final film starts at 19.00. Not a lot of time in between if you want to see both films, and want to eat something! So we've decide to open our foyer to bring (and eat) your own food, something that normally isn't allowed.

So bring your own food or buy something from the many nice diners at the Weimarstraat and enjoy your dinner in our foyer before you see the final film and performance of the festival!

Film: The Adventures of Prince Achmed (Lotte Reiniger, Germany, 1926)
Based on stories from "The Arabian Nights", a handsome prince rides a flying horse to far-away lands and embarks on magical adventures which include befriending a witch, meeting Aladdin, battling demons and falling in love with a princess. The film’s director, Lotte Reiniger, was a pioneer of early cinema and animated film, and a standard-bearer for women in the industry. Her hypnotic films, painstakingly crafted out of snippets of card and wire and animated by hand, have influenced generations of film-makers and artists. “The Adventures of Prince Achmed” is the world’s first animated feature film, a whirlwind of a fantasy filled with innovation and beauty that still has the power to capture the hearts of contemporary viewers.

Music: Amer Shanati (oud), Leah Uijterlinde (clarinet, percussion and voice) and Carlos Ema (piano and electronics)
Our music is shaped by our cultures and traditions: Arabic, Flamenco and Sephardi Music (and the strong influence they have on each other). This encounter is evoked by the spells of the animated shadows of the beautiful film “The Adventures of Prince Achmed” and will become its live soundtrack; interacting between acoustic sounds and live electronics, plugged and percussed strings, voices and woodwinds.

Amer Shanati - Ud [Arabic lute] and Composition (Palestine)
Leah Uijterlinde - Voice, Clarinet, Live Electronics and Composition (Netherlands)
Carlos Ema - Piano, Live Electronics, Composition and Direction (Spain)
