Black, white, film, music: This year's silent film series kicks off with Joe May's melodrama »Asphalt«, a film jewel of Weimar cinema whose unleashed camera transports us to the electrifying Berlin of the 1920s. Neo-classicist Francesco Tristano and Japanese pianist Cateen play to it en blanc et noir. The furor of the pianist Orlac, who is transplanted with the hands of a murderer in Robert Wiene's late expressionist masterpiece »Orlac's Hands«, is traced by Johannes Kalitzke and the Klangforum Wien. To the breathtakingly magnificent parody of Charlie Chaplin's »The Great Dictator«, the Tonkünstler Orchestra performs the original music with Timothy Brock at the conductor's podium. Dziga Vertov's experimental documentary film »The Man with the Camera« about everyday life in the cities of Moscow, Odessa and Kiev provides the visually stunning finale. Martin Eberle and Martin Ptak make Vertov's images take off with their jazz and electronic sounds.
