VAMPYR & STEVEN SEVERIN

CARL DREYER

VAMPYR: DER TRAUM DES ALLAN GRAY

Following on from last month’s screening of Carl Dreyer’s classic, the IFI is delighted to present this reprise screening with live musical accompaniment by Steven Severin.

A co-founding member of and driving force behind Siouxsie and the Banshees, Severin has in recent years turned his talents towards original scores for film, including Jean Cocteau’s Blood of a Poet. His particular musical sensibilities are well suited to Dreyer’s eerie, experimental masterpiece. Vampyr begins with a young student of the occult arriving at an inn and receiving a mysterious package containing a book about vampires.

A story based on Irish writer Sheridan Le Fanu’s Carmilla, Vampyr is one of Dreyer’s key works, and with Steven Severin’s synthesised, atmospheric soundscape as accompaniment, this will prove a unique cinematic experience for fans of either man.

Tickets: €13.

70 minutes, Germany-France, 1932, Subtitled, Black and White, DVD
