Film | Vampyr (Carl Theodor Dreyer, Denmark, 1932)
With Vampyr, Danish filmmaker Carl Theodor Dreyer channeled his genius for creating mesmerizing atmosphere and austere, unsettling imagery into the horror genre. The result - a chilling film about a student of the occult who encounters supernatural haunts and local evildoers in a village outside of Paris - is nearly unclassifiable. A host of stunning camera and editing tricks and densely layered sounds create a mood of dreamlike terror. With its roiling fogs, ominous scythes, and foreboding echoes, Vampyr is one of cinema’s great nightmares.

Music: Rotterdam Kinematic Ensemble and Silent Sound Design
Rotterdam Kinematic Ensemble specializes in live improvised music for silent films. The ensemble works within the experimental and improvisation music community with a variable geometry adapting its instrumental set according to the movie program. The ensemble is valued for their unique audio-cinematic experience of intense musical improvisation between players and interaction with the movie. 

Silent Sound Design is a project by Rotterdam based sound-artist Robert Kroos, that aims at bringing silent film back to life with sound design, foley and effects.
