Our Music on Film series features a new screening each Wednesday evening — free for all to enjoy. Coinciding with our Listening to Art, Seeing Music experience, the series demonstrates the power of music and the arts to unite people across cultural, geographic, and political borders.

Lute Electric

Dimitris Sideris, 2016, 45 min., G. Presented in Greek with English subtitles.

A Venetian vaulted theatre. A deserted, half-built amphitheatre. Two old tannery factories. It is within these historic and exceptional structures that creator and designer Dimitris Sideris attempts a series of improvised recordings using the equally exceptional electric lute he constructed.
