Fritz Lang’s influential German science-fiction silent film will be brought to life through an electro-acoustic soundtrack composed and performed live by award-winning flutist, composer, and educator Yael Acher “KAT” Modiano.

For the pre-show, we're having a retro/futuristic fashion show! So come dressed in retro style or in your most modern and innovative outfit, and you'll be able to catwalk on our stage.

Ms. Modiano, who creates her entire score through flute and special effects, has performed at Lincoln Center, The High Line, Jewish Heritage Museum, and the Tel Aviv International LGBT Film Festival in Israel. Her work has been described as «spell binding, action packed and deeply original” and “sophisticated multi-tracks and electronics [creating] glinting, spooky ‘audio images’.” She created the original score through a grant from the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council in 2014.
