The Fall of the House of Usher

The Fall of the House of Usher was Jean Epstein's first film with his own production group and probably his best known work. Charlie Barber's specially composed score comprises an ensemble of wind, strings and percussion, and takes inspiration from the musical sketches of Debussy's uncompleted opera 'La chure de la maison Usher', and will be played alongside a screening of the film. The live musical performance brings further depth to the foreboding atmosphere of this classic of early cinema.
