Imagine yourself in the idyllic French countryside in the 1930's. Sometime before dark, a gypsy caravan sets up camp in a field outside of town, luring the locals out for an evening’s fun. The wanderers travel with a film projector, pointing it at the side of a barn. As the images flicker to life beneath the stars, gypsy musicians play their guitars and fiddles, matching every movement on the screen with characteristic virtuosity, passion and humor. Reviving this lost entertainment; The Hot Club of San Francisco presents Cinema Vivant, an evening of vintage silent films accompanied by live gypsy swing. Cinema Vivant Featured Films: There It Is, Charley Bowers (1928) The Cameraman's Revenge, Ladislaw Starewicz (1912). Event takes Saturday, January 17, from 8pm – 10pm at Arts Center-Iowa Western Community, 2700 College Road, Council Bluffs, IA.
