London on Film – ‘Underground’

'underground' at the Barbican

Next Wednesday 5th october, there’s a wonderful opportunity to see the 1928 film ‘Underground’ at the Barbican.  It’ll be screened with a new score by Neil Brand, performed live by the BBC Symphony Orchestra.

Directed by Anthouny Asquith, ‘Underground’ is a tale of love, treachery and murder, with the setting and atmosphere provided by London’s underground.  Stylistically Asquith was influenced by German Expressionism, so expect dramatic shadows and sharp angles used to great effect for hieghtened emotional tension.
