‹ Back to What's On Moishe’s Bagel

17 Mar 2016

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).
