CINEsound explores the multi-faceted dimensions of music and sound and how they interact with the world in a digital age. This cinematheque style series invites the audience to an immersive experience, featuring live instrumentalists interpreting stories through sound, in accompaniment to classic, film noir and documentary style films. In partnership with Film Streams and International Contemporary Ensemble, these uniquely curated cinema experiences promise an exciting merger of compositions, sounds, and live scoring with gems of the silver screen.

ONE Festival and CINEsound will kick off with a midnight screening of a rare 35mm print of Andrzej Zulawski’s Possession. Sam Neill stars in this legendary occult-horror-thriller about a jilted man trying to solve the mystery of his wife’s sudden strange behavior. The film will be preceded by a live overture — Hannah Hartman’s “Message from the Lighthouse” — performed by Karre.
