Live Cinema presents: TUVALU with live score
Veit Helmer | 2017 | Cert 15 | 100 mins | Live Score


Silent film is going to get loud….

Live Cinema UK is delighted to announce that its co-commission of TUVALU + live score by Mr. Lee and IvaneSky, which premiered at Motovun Film Festival 2017 as part of the Creative Europe-funded Live Cinema EU programme, will be holding its UK premiere in Hull, UK City of Culture 2017.

Set sail on a once in a lifetime watery adventure where you can be part of the soundtrack, or just bask in the indie electro joys of Croatia’s leading artists Mr Lee & IvaneSky at their first UK show. A modern soundtrack for a modern silent film Veit Helmer’s gorgeous Tuvalu ranks alongside the Oscar-winning The Artist as one of the greatest silent films made in recent years. Why choose between a gig or a film when you can have both? No piano solo accompaniment here: silent film is going to get loud!

All attendees will be able to be part of the score using their mobile phones, with interactive elements cueing you to cheer, stamp, boo and even gargle as our hero Anton sets out to save his beloved swimming pool from closure, and win the heart of feisty Eva in this quirky silent fairytale.

This will be only the second time the live soundtrack has been performed in the world, with the world premiere taking place at the 20th Motovun Film Festival in Croatia in July 2017. Previously unreleased in the UK, Tuvalu is a must-see for fans of classic silent films, as well as fans of alternative indie live music think Arcade Fire, British Sea Power, or Sigur Ros.

TUVALU is rated 15 by Hull City Council
