As part of the new Organ Grinders series taking place at the Hollywood Theatre this year, Portland instrumental duo
premieres an original soundtrack for some of the strangest celluloid of the silent era:
Mest' kinematograficheskogo operatora
The Cameraman's Revenge.
Made in 1911 by Vladislaw Starewicz, it is one of the first works of stop motion animation. Painstakingly posing dead insects, the Russian filmmaker crafted his story of infidelity in the lives of beetles complete with a grasshopper on a moped and a projectionist diving from a flaming booth.
