SILENT FILM CONCERT: THE HOUSE ON TRUBNAYA

Boris Barnet's THE HOUSE ON TRUBNAYA tells the story of Parasha, a peasant girl who moves to Moscow with her pet duck and finds a job as a maid for the barber Golikov. Parasha may be a simple farm girl, but she is not duped by the false charms of the petite-bourgeoisie. Instead, she joins a trade union for home workers and thus demonstrates her revolutionary spirits.

THE HOUSE ON TRUBNAYA is a lively comedy, a celebration of the new Soviet way of life and a social commentary to the troublesome 1920s. Unknown to Western audiences for 60 years, it is now seen as a masterpiece of Soviet silent cinema, in the way it combines great comic timing with avant-garde storytelling techiques. We are honored to present it in a silent film concert with new original music, performed by a fabulous ensemble led by the Tromsø-based cellist Bernt Simen Lund. It features Ekaterina Efremova (guitar and vocals), Arkadiy Shilkloper (wind instruments), and Erik Stifjell (percussion, electronic instruments). Don't miss out!
