Ciné Salon: Buried Treasure
Impressions on the Art of the Cinematograph with Bruce Posner
Monica Flaherty: Moana With Sound
In 1923-24, a 3-year-old Monica Flaherty joined her famous parents - documentary filmmakers Robert and Francis Flaherty - on a quest to capture on film Samoan Island tribal life. Fifty years later as an adult and caretaker of her parents’ cinematic heritage, Monica returned to realize a post-synchronized soundtrack to complement the silent classic, Moana: A Romance of the Golden Age (1926).
“The soundtrack is astonishing.” —Kevin Brownlow
