Devil Music Ensemble to score 'Red Heroine' live
Centenary College presents the Devil Music Ensemble on Oct. 3, and it promises to be a pretty unique moviegoing experience. They are providing a live score to a 1929 Chinese kung fu film called "Red Heroine." Check out the preview above. Fun stuff.
Here's an excerpt from DME's website: "Episode six of RED HEROINE (a.k.a. RED KNIGHT-ERRANT), the only surviving episode of the 13-part serial, is also one of the few complete and earliest extant silent martial arts films. Made at the height of the martial arts craze in 1920s Shanghai, this lively tale about the rise of a woman warrior features the genre’s then-characteristic blend of pulp and mystical derring-do."
WHAT: "Red Heroine," with a live score by the Devil Music Ensemble.
WHEN: 7 p.m. Oct. 3.
WHERE: Centenary College's Kilpatrick Auditorium, Shreveport.
COST: free, open to the public.
