Experience the compelling story of Der müde Tod on the big screen, with live music by Wishful Singing and percussionist Modar Salama. Steven Kamperman has composed a thrilling soundtrack that lends new meaning to the classic 1921 film.
The expressionist, romantic film, internationally known as Destiny, was a reaction to the countless victims of the Spanish Influenza. Now, a century later, the film is stunningly topical.
In Der müde Tod, a woman is given three chances by Death to twist fate and get her lover back. In doing so, she is confronted with near-impossible choices.
The live music that accompanies this film by Fritz Lang (who inspired Hitchcock and Spielberg, among others) is a beautiful addition. A truly unique experience!
Kamperman transforms the poetic titles of Der müde Tod into melodies that are then beautifully performed by Wishful Singing. André Waardenburg, NRC
