The Open Road Live Musical Accompaniment by Sue Harshe

Claude Friese-Greene, 1926

The Open Road is a remarkable cinematic travelogue capturing many facets of British life in the 1920s, from seaside villages to mining towns, from the Wedgewood Pottery to the Pleasure Beach at Blackpool.

The film is significant both as a landmark in the development of color on film and as a fascinating visual record of Britain between the wars. The film was restored by The British Film Institute. Sue Harshe, formerly or Scrawl, provides live keyboard accompaniment. (65 mins., 35mm)
