L’Inferno is Italy’s first feature film and the first feature-length horror film ever released. A wild adaptation of Dante’s classic journey through hell, this 1911 silent cinematic masterpiece employs elaborate costumes, special effects, and set design to create an awe-inspiring and ethereal world. The original Montopolis score brings new life to the horror classic with a mix of psych rock, dark wave and terrifying sound effects performed live. Montopolis is following up last year’s national tour of their acclaimed Man with a Movie Camera live score. (Dir. by Francesco Bertolini/Adolfo Padovan/Giuseppe de Liguoro, 1911, Italy, silent, 71 mins., Not Rated)
Montopolis is an indie chamber music group from Austin, Texas that performs the works of composer Justin Sherburn. Their genre-busting music uses inventive instrumentation to create “stunning and transcendent” (Austin Chronicle) concerts. Their programs are audience-engaging, multi-media events that combine live music with film and interactive storytelling. The Montopolis musicians include members of the Austin Symphony, Okkervil River, Tosca String Quartet, and the Polyphonic Spree.
