With live music by Alloy Orchestra

(Teinosuke Kinugasa, 1926)

The renowned Alloy Orchestra returns to provide its signature musical accompaniment to the haunting, avant-garde Japanese silent film A Page of Madness. Alloy’s past visits to the Wex have always been crowd-pleasing events that ended in standing ovations—and we’re confident this visit will deliver the same!

In A Page of Madness, a retired sailor volunteers at an insane asylum in order to be near his wife who is confined there. A cinematic tour-de-force, the film is without intertitles and relies on a dizzying array of camera angles and fast-paced editing to evoke the POV of the mentally ill. Based in Cambridge, MA, Alloy Orchestra (percussionist Terry Donahue, director Ken Winokur, and keyboardist Roger C. Miller) has accompanied a wide range of silent-era films in every corner of the US, as well as in countless countries abroad. This is sure to be as spectacular a night of movie and music as you could ever hope to find! (70 mins., DCP)

Please note: $5 cash-only special event parking is available in the Ohio Union Garages just south of the Wex.
