Diary of a Lost Girl was directed by the outstanding German director G W Pabst and stars the American star of silent films Louise Brooks. The film is accompanied by a live performance from musical group Wurlitza.
Wurlitza have been performing live music soundtracks to silent films for several years. Their scores are very carefully choreographed to fit the mood of every part of the film – requiring time keeping accurate to the second. The repertoire used is wide ranging from jazz and blues classics to classical pieces to modern anthems and some of their own compositions contrasting and complementing vintage visuals with music from throughout the ages. Each film is a culmination of two years of painstaking work and preparations. In an approach differing from other soundtracks, Wurlitza offer a new experience by accompanying films with a mixture of jazz, classical and contemporary popular music, both instrumental and sung, thereby bridging the distance between the 1920’s and the current day.
This is the third visit by Wurlitza to the Landulph Festival whose previous performances with the films “Piccadilly” and the Oscar winning “Sunrise” proved very popular.
