The CINEGOGUE cinema concert in the Spanish Synagogue

THE JEWISH MUSEUM IN PRAGUE & THE BERG ORCHESTRA invite you to the music and film event of the year - a screening of the 1922 silent classic Hungry Hearts (directed by E. Mason Hopper) with a new score by the young Czech composer Jan Dušek performed by the most progressive ensemble on the contemporary Czech music scene, the Berg Orchestra, conducted by Peter Vrábel.

Spanish Synagogue
14 October 2009 at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.

The CINEGOGUE cinema concerts will take place on Wednesday, October 14, 2009 at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. Part of the CINEGOGUE project (an irregular film series held by the Jewish Museum in Prague to provide viewers with an opportunity of getting to know interesting works from the field of Jewish film and video art which are otherwise rarely shown in the Czech Republic) and BERG 09 - BRÁNY SVĚTŮ / GATES OF WORLDS (a concert series with world premieres of works by young Czech composers, emphasizing the merge of inventive dramaturgy and unusual spaces), both presentations will be set in the unique space of the Spanish Synagogue (Vězeňská 3, Prague 1), which belongs to the Jewish Museum in Prague.

Previously unscreened in the Czech Republic and with the original new score, the presentation of this jewel from Hollywood's Silent Era produced by Samuel Goldwyn - a combination of romance, slapstick, court drama and documentary (featuring original footages of New York's Lower East Side, which in the first decades of the 20th century was inhabited mainly by Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe) - is a world premiere. Undertaking the difficult restoration of the original copy of this film, the National Center for Jewish Film (NCJF) at Brandeis University has also produced a digital transcript that enables the film to be seen again by a wide audience, including the audience of the Jewish Museum in Prague.


Financial support for the project was provided by:
Embassy of the United States
Prague City Hall
