Svengali, and the Sexual Anxieties of the Anti-Semite: 16 mm Screening, Victrola and Cocktails

Morbid Anatomy Museum 424A 3rd Ave, Gowanus, Brooklyn, NY, Stati Uniti

A screening of Svengali (1931) on 16mm film with a short introduction by Filmmaker Joel Schlemowitz

Date: Tuesday, April 14th
Time: 8pm
Admission: $8
Location: Morbid Anatomy Museum, 424 Third Avenue, 11215 Brooklyn

The 1931 adaptation of George Du Maurier's Trilby is perhaps most notable for the gleefully sinister John Barrymore in his role as the Jewish mesmerist and malevolent maestro. Set in the painters' studios of bohemian Paris is the tale of a tin-eared damsel who is transformed into prima donna by a strange Eastern European musician and hypnotist, making her the captive of his sinister psychic control.

The film is a charming, gothic curio -- with distorted expressionist sets -- a sombre charcoal gray visual palette -- glistening black and white images emblematic of the golden age of silver nitrate -- the haunting special effect of the hypnotist's glowing eyes -- and a fantastical tracking shot moving through Svengali's window and across the Paris rooftops in a moment of pure cine-magic. Filmmaker and drollerist Joel Schlemowitz will introduce the movie with a short talk on Svengali and the sexual anxieties of the anti-semite.

Expect Trilby-themed cocktails: “The Little Billee,” “The Taffy,” and “The Laird.” The event will also include pre- and post-screening music by way of 78 records on the Victrola, featuring bel canto arias and Yiddish comic songs.

Svengali will be presented on 16mm film -- that’s REAL film, people! Film!!
