Event description
A truly rare treat to experience LIVE cinema - award-winning film SUNRISE + archive short with LIVE musical accompaniment

About this Event

REEL WOMEN: Film heritage LIVE

If you love film and you love music, you’ll love REEL WOMEN.

Join us in celebration of women's histories for a rare experience to watch a masterpiece of silent cinema with LIVE musical accompaniment. A free event, REEL WOMEN will showcase SUNRISE (1927), winner of the top Oscar at the first Academy Awards in 1929.

A treat not to be missed, the film will be accompanied LIVE by celebrated composer and musician Stephen Horne. If you haven't experienced live cinema before this is the perfect opportunity to start!

Sunrise is set in the roaring 1920s, an age of mass consumerism and Jazz Age flappers. A thrilling tale of love and deception, the film opens as two lovers meet under moonlight and dream of committing the perfect murder. An alluring femme fatale has seduced a farmer into leaving his sweet young wife and life in the country. But will he kill for the promise of the bright lights of the modern city?

REEL WOMEN is a celebration of women’s histories on film. Janet Gaynor, who stars as the wronged wife, was one of the biggest box office draws of her generation and her performance in Sunrise secured her the first ever Academy Award for Best Actress.

The film will be preceded by a short programme of archive footage revealing aspects of women’s lives across the Midlands over the past 100 years.

REEL WOMEN is co-curated by students from the University of Lincoln and the Media Archive for Central England, the regional film archive for the Midlands. The event is part of the University of Lincoln's Festival of Creativity and is gratefully supported by Film Hub North and the BFI Film Audience Network as part of Changing Times: Women's Histories.
