The Vintage Music House at VDNKh continues a series of screenings of world cinema masterpieces with auctorial simultaneous translation.
On August 12, the evening session will be devoted to the ancestor of the era of sound cinema - the first musical film "The Jazz Singer" (USA, 1927).
The film came out with elements of a completely new genre for the time - a musical - to become the world's first full-length picture made using the sound of synchronous lines.
The main character is played by one of the pioneers of jazz singing Al Jolson
who won the title of "the greatest showman of the world" after the release of the film.
The movie tells a story of a young heir of a pious Jewish family Yasha Rabinovich, whose passion for music changed the whole course of his life. Contradicting the strict requirements of his family and heritage and following the call of art, he becomes a jazz singer...
The filming cost $ 422,000 - a huge amount at the time, but these costs returned quickly.
In 1929, the film received three Oscars at once, one of which was in an unusual nomination: "For creation of the first sound picture that revolutionized the film industry."
"The Jazz Singer" will be shown at the Vintage Music House with auctorial offscreen text by the artist George Sergeyev.
Price: 600 rubles. Children under 16: 300 rubles.
