British Silent Film Festival

The Song of the Scarlet Flower TBC

Thu 12 Sep, 6.15pm

A big-budget classic from the golden age of Swedish silent cinema, starring Lars Hanson as the wilful homme fatale and farmers’ son Olof, who is expelled from home after a familial disagreement. Olof joins an itinerant group of loggers who ride through rapids down river. But despite his bravado, he can’t forget a woman he left behind.

Stunning location cinematography and a justifiably famous log-riding sequence highlight the relationship between humans and their magisterial landscape. The original music score by Armas Jarnefelt, who along with Sibelius was Finland’s most popular composer, is here reproduced to perfection.
