NYsferatu Screening at Sunset Park
Movie Under the Stars:
More Art premieres NYsferatu: Symphony of a Century by Andrea Mastrovito, a spectacular, hand-animated, silent film that combines music and community engagement to create a powerful and poignant statement about the horrors of the unknown and the inspiring search for liberty.
Resetting Friedrich W. Murnau’s classic 1922 film Nosferatu in contemporary New York City, Mastrovito and his team of 12 artists have created over 35,000 original drawings to replicate the beautifully eerie flickering shutter effect of early cinema. The reimagined storyline and title-cards of NYsferatu were made in collaboration with advanced ESOL students at Sunset Park’s own Turning Point Education Center with recent immigrants throughout NYC that hail from dozens of home countries. The original musical score for the film was composed by Simone Giuliani.
