Film Screening with Live Accompaniment and Original Score by Michele Sganga
Cajus Julius Caesar, 1914. Directed by Enrico Guazzoni
A live screening at UCLA’s James Bridges Theater of the rarely seen yet remarkable Italian silent feature film Cajus Julius Caesar (1914, dir. Enrico Guazzoni) brought over especially from the archives of the Netherlands Film Institute and accompanied by an original score composed for the occasion by the noted concert pianist and composer Michele Sganga. Caesar’s life is presented in three movements: first romantic melodrama (his secret love for the beautiful Servilia); then triumph (his victory in Gaul); finally tragedy (death at the hands of his friends).
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Maria Wyke and Michele Sganga.
