What's On

Moishe’s Bagel

Back to What's On

Dir. Mikhail Kalatozov, 1930, Soviet Union, 54 min, Cert PG

Moishe’s Bagel’s adrenaline-charged blend of Eastern European and jazz inflected klezmer music makes a fantastic live score for Mikhail Kalatozov’s remarkable 1930 Soviet propaganda silent film Salt for Svanetia.

Kalatozov’s visually striking and, at times, disturbing film originally promoted Soviet measures to modernise the isolated Svan people of the Caucasus Mountains in north-west Georgia and is a dramatic combination of history and socialist realism.

The evening will feature a full set from the band followed by the film and score after the interval. Moishe’s Bagel is Phil Alexander (keyboards), Greg Lawson (violin), Mario Caribe (bass) Pete Garnett (accordion), and Guy Nicolson (percussion).

Please note the time listed on your ticket/webpage is the start time for the performance. Doors open approximately 30 minutes beforehand. Where there is a support act, this will also be stated on the website/ticket. We recommend arriving at least 15 minutes before show time as latecomers will only be admitted during a suitable break in the performance.

With its quirky rhythms and off-kilter harmonies, the music was a striking, Prokofiev-meets-Nyman counterpart to the bizarre images in Mikhail Kalatozov’s remarkable film
