Film Screening: Nysferatu
October 20 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
On Saturday, October 20th, join us in celebrating Italian Day of Contemporary Art!
To commemorate the occasion, Norval Foundation will host the Italian Consulate of Cape Town in Gallery 9 for a screening of “NYsferatu: Symphony of a Century”, a new animated horror film which updates and upends a classic silent vampire movie to explore the immigrant experience in New York City.
“NYsferatu: Symphony of a Century,” gives the 1922 German film “Nosferatu” by Murnau, a modern New York setting and a blood-sucking character who may not be as bad as you think.
Its Italian-born creator spent three years drawing the film, but says that the recent immigration restrictions suggested by the tweeter-in-chief have made the film resonate now more than ever.
The movie screening is free, and everyone is invited!
