Zeitgeist Movies to present silent classic The Wind with live original soundtrack

Posted By on Tue, Jun 18, 2013 at 7:36 AM

One of the last major silent films produced by Hollywood, The Wind was an outright flop upon its release in 1928. Audiences had just started flocking to movies that had sound. But The WInd's theme's of sex, violence, and existential dread also had something to do with the reaction from unprepared viewers, which was bad enough to inspire the last-minute addition of a happy ending. Today, The Wind has natural appeal for film-savvy audiences. Zeitgeist movies will present a one-time screening of The Wind on Sunday, June 23 at 8 p.m. accompanied by a live original score by The Invincible Czars from Austin, Texas. More info here.
