Get Some Film Love on Thursday (2/18)

The series Film Love, curated by Andy Ditzler, will screen the film Two-Man Orchestra by Mauricio Kagel.  Here's a description of the event which will take place 8p @ Eyedrum:

In addition to creating one of the twentieth century’s most original bodies of musical and theatrical work, the composer Mauricio Kagel doubled as a film director, with typically mindblowing results. Like his music, Kagel’s films constantly upend traditional expectations of the music listening experience.

On February 18 at Eyedrum, Film Love presents an exceedingly rare screening of Kagel’s film Two-Man Orchestra. Two musicians are inserted into Kagel’s specially built one-man-band setups (of over 250 instruments!) which they control with their fingers, feet, legs, heads and any other possible way. Trapped in these enormous, overgrown constructions and dealing with their unpredictable malfunctions, the performers evoke everything from Charlie Chaplin to circus music to complete atonality in a virtuoso physical and musical feat.
