Rooftop Ciné-Concerts Series: The Red Kimona
Live music: Deborah Bradley-Kramer&son, piano and cello
The Czech Center 2015 ROOFTOP CINÉ-CONCERT SERIES continues on Tuesday 14 July with the second of its dynamic collaborations.
The rooftop will be the exclusive setting for an evening of piano, cello and The Red Kimona.
Bradley-Kramer is the founder and pianist of The Moebius Ensemble, a group dedicated to fostering cross-cultural exchanges between musicians and composers in Eastern Europe and in the U.S. As a soloist she has performed throughout Europe and the U.S. with such orchestras as the Cleveland Chamber Orchestra, the Lasi Philharmonic (Romania) and the St. Petersburg Classical Symphony.
After the opening concert, The Red Kimona, silent film will commence underscored by Bradley-Kramer (77 min). This 1925 ‘Fallen Women’ themed movie deals with a small town girl who finds escape from her cruel home life in the arms of a handsome stranger. She soon finds herself working as a prostitute in New Orleans, desperately clinging to the belief that he really loves her.
As guests arrive at 7pm they will sip welcome cocktails as the sun goes down over Manhattan. Deborah Bradley-Kramer, a professor at Columbia University and world-class classical pianist, performs with her ten-year old son, a child prodigy, on the cello.
The British Board of Film Censors originally banned it in the United Kingdom in 1926. The film is notable today for being one of the few independent productions produced and written by women.
