About This Event

Silent films were not silent. The term is a retronym, coined after the invention of synchronized recorded sound that did away with live musical accompaniments. Now, recorded and live sound are part of an artist’s palette, made as plastic as paint and clay. Unlike paintings and sculptures, however, sound wanders and lingers, in theaters and galleries—and on the streets long after you leave the museum.Film Showing:

  • Bert Haanstra, Glas, 1958. Run time: 8:58
    This documentary masterfully couples jazz tunes with footage of hand-blown and mass-produced glassmaking factories.
  • Shirley Clarke, Ornette: Made in America, 1984. Run time: 1:25:00
    This study of the jazz giant Ornette Coleman captures three decades of the saxophonist's musical evolution.
About Cinematheque

The 2018 International transforms the CMOA Theater into a cinematheque. The French term "cinematheque" refers to a small film house or a film library. Libraries open up a world of knowledge to the public, and the International’s Cinematheque likewise brings to Pittsburgh worlds captured by filmmakers near and far.
