Stories From the Past/ Sounds From the Future with Jeff Beam and Friends

INFO
Saturday, November 2 2013

SPACE presents a special night of rare film and live music. Working closely with Northeast Historic Film archives in Bucksport, musician Jeff Beam has selected a handful of silent-film curiosities from throughout New England around which to build an eclectic songspiel.  From scenes of blueberry farming in Hiram, to ice harvesting in Machias, via anonymous family tales on the shores of any old Maine lake, these forgotten historical documents provide the perfect foils for Beam’s elegant, evocative scores and songs.  Originally commissioned by and premiered at Denmark Arts Center, Stories/Sounds is a new way of looking at and experiencing Maine.  Post film Q&A with special guests Lizz Sinclair, Jeremy Hook, and Jeff Beam, moderated by Ariel Rogers, USM Assistant Professor of Film Studies.
