In the honor of René Magritte, the Spring of Amos Rex museum and Bio Rex cinema will look and sound surreal! Amos Rex and Korjaamo Kino are proud to present a live accompanied silent film screening Amiina: Juve vs. Fantômas on Saturday 6.4.2019. The Surrealists - and Magritte in particular - were fascinated by Fantômas, a criminal genius of diabolical perversity. A Magritte painting in the exhibition, The Flame rekindled, is a direct homage to the first masked anti-hero.
Icelandic string quartet Amiina perform a haunting soundtrack live to a screening of the silent film classic Juve vs. Fantômas (1913). The ethereal music of Amiina echoes perfectly the surreal and mysterious film, in which the detective Juve chases the untouchable criminal Fantômas all around Paris. The cine-concert premiered in 2013 at Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the silent film series, at the invitation of the reknown soundtrack composer Yann Tiersen.
