21st Century Classical Music is a document of the first year of this one-of-a-kind chamber ensemble's existence, filmed entirely in Philadelphia. Director Sergio Valentino was granted full access to the group's activities throughout 2010 with the result being a film filled with interviews, rehearsal footage, press junkets, a history of the theremin and plenty of live performance footage that includes everything from classical pieces to funerary music to covers of classic horror and sci-fi theme songs. A quick catch-me-up for the uninitiated and a behind-the-scenes joy for the converted, 21st Century Classical Music is an enjoyable portrait of one of Philadelphia's most valuable musical outfits.
The film will be followed by a live performance from the DHE that will feature new material as well as current fan favorites. Tuesday Tune-Out is PhilaMOCA's weekly series of local music/film that is programmed by a different guest curator every month. The Cinedelphia Film Festival are proud to join the impressive list of past curators who have made this series such a popular success. Advance tix are $10, no refunds or exchanges.
The Cinedelphia Film Festival is a Philly-centric celebration of Philly film running from April 4-27, 2013.
