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

Ciné Salon's Spring 2013 film series digs deep into the archives and comes up with cinematic gold, unique and original visions. The films range from underrated mainstream classics (Moana, The Cruel Sea, Suddenly) to avant-garde experiments (Alexander Kluge, Sami van Ingen, Bruce Baillie) and a comic rediscovery (Charley Bowers).

Ciné Salons are held on selected Mondays at 7 p.m. in the Mayer Room at Howe Library. For a complete schedule of Ciné Salon events, click here.
