The Phantom Carriage

We continue our (pre) New Year’s silent film tradition with a screening of the Swedish masterpiece The Phantom Carriage, with a live soundtrack by Brooklyn-based guitarist Noveller, on December 30 at the Crowley Theater. The Phantom Carriage (1921) is based on Körkarlen, a novel by the 1909 Nobel Prize winner Selma Lagerlöf, and directed by Victor Sjöström (best known for his performance as Professor Isak Borg in Ingmar Bergman’s Wild Strawberries).

As always, the screening is free, doors at 7 pm, show at 7:30 pm. You can read more about the film here, and check out Noveller’s excellent session with Liz Berg at WFMU at the Free Music Archive.
