Film Concert Lime Kiln Club Field Day/Moses Boyd - Solo – X
Event 8 December 2017 – 8:30pm
Film concert introduced by Ron Magliozzi, Associate Curator in the Department of Film, Museum of Modern Art and organised in conjunction with the Being Modern: MoMA in Paris exhibition.
Lime Kiln Club Field Day is the oldest-known feature film to date with a cast of black actors. This recently rediscovered and restored work – an excerpt of which is shown in the exhibition – is screened in the auditorium, accompanied by a concert by Moses Boyd - Solo – X. Boyd, representing the new English jazz scene, presents a novel musical programme as it relates to the film, with updated renditions of the ragtime that traditionally served as a live soundtrack for the silent films of the 1910s. The screening is introduced by Ron Magliozzi, Curator of MoMA’s Department of Film and the person responsible for the rediscovery of Lime Kiln Club Field Day.
