10 pm – FILM
The General, Buster Keaton, USA, 1926
Original version in English with Spanish subtitles, accompanied by live music.

Johnny Gray is a Southern railway engineer with two great loves: a girl (Annabelle Lee) and a locomotive (The General). When the Civil War breaks out in 1861, Johnny tries to enlist, but he is considered too valuable in his rearguard job. However, Anabelle thinks he is a coward and refuses to speak to him. Our hero can only show his true valour when Unionist spies steal his train, kidnapping Annabelle. Johnny immediately sets off in hot pursuit, driving another locomotive to pursue the Yankees and rescue his two beloved ones.

This film-concert enables the whole family to enjoy a classic film, accompanied by live music performed by a chamber ensemble of musicians from the Vallès Symphony Orchestra and a jazz trio, conducted by the maestro Guerassim Voronkov, who composed the music for this showing with Hernan Serna.

Buster Keaton is a master of gags and narrative pace, and this session, with its live music, is guaranteed to transport the spectator to the heart and soul of the slapstick art. 

Suitable for all audiences.
