The Score to Bastille Day

A scene from Orphans of the Storm

Bastille Day is this Saturday and what better way to show your zest for French history than attenting Orphans of the Storm, a dramatic silent film about two sisters separated during the French revolution, and their struggle to reunite. The film was directed by legendary filmmaker D.W. Griffith.

Silent film musician Jeff Rapsis created a score for Orphans of the Storm, and will be accompanying the film, live, July fourteenth in the screening room of the red river theatres in Concord at 7 pm.

Click here to hear our original interview with Jeff, back when he performed the live score for the silent scifi classic Metropolis.
