Screening, live accompaniment by Kevin Toma (piano and synthesizer) and Huib van de Grint (guitar). This special filmconcert screening promises to be the most extraordinary feature of the MovieWeekend. Somewhere in South America a group of explorers finds a hidden world full of living dinosaurs. Of course, this leads to all sorts of exciting and shocking developments. The classical filmdrama from 1925 inspired Steven Spielberg for a remake almost 70 years later: ‘Jurrassic Park’.
Pianist Kevin Toma on the original film’s charm: ‘It’s really something to see how rich the films made in this period were. Take, for example, the scene in which the main characters first see brontosauruses. Highly sophisticated stop-motion trickery is used so that frame by frame the dinosaurs are seen to walk. With double projections, they appear in the shot with the people. At the time, this would have seemed truly convincing; today it seems really charming. The whole decor of The Lost World looks fantastic. With our music we want to enhance the film’s charm, so that you can immerse yourself in this fantasy world.’
