This fall, in partnership with Court 13, the New Orleans Film Society, and Winter Circle Productions, Wordless Music presents their first show in New Orleans — and it’s shaping up to be a memorable one. On Saturday, October 10 Wordless Music Orchestra will perform a live score with screening to the extraordinary 2012 film BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD. Joining us for this very special performance will be Louisiana’s own Lost Bayou Ramblers, along with conductor Ryan McAdams.
Winner of 75 awards internationally, including top prizes at Sundance and Cannes, BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD was directed by first-time filmmaker Benh Zeitlin, and takes place in a south Louisiana bayou squatters’ community called the Bathtub. starring child actor Quvenzhané Wallis in an unforgettable role that would make her the youngest nominee for Best Actress in Oscar history.
“To say we are honored to bring this show down to New Orleans would be a ridiculous understatement,” says Wordless Music. It’s hard to improve on Roger Ebert’s words: “Sometimes miraculous films come into being, made by people you’ve never heard of, starring unknown faces, blindsiding you with creative genius.”
