Imagine yourself in the idyllic French countryside in the 1930’s. A gypsy caravan sets up a film projector in a field outside of town, luring the locals out for an evening’s fun. 

As the images flicker to life beneath the stars, gypsy musicians play their guitars and fiddles, matching every movement on the screen. Reviving this lost entertainment, The Hot Club of San Francisco presents Cinema Vivant, an evening of vintage silent films accompanied by live gypsy swing. Featuring two films by the famed European stop-action filmmaker Ladislaw Starewicz, this charming performance celebrates music of the past with intricate, scorching and often brilliant renditions of the film’s original scores.
