Der Aa Church
Akerkhof 2

A Page of Madness 

Once again the Aa Church will be transformed into a cinema during the International Film Festival Rotterdam in Groningen. On Friday 2 February we present the film A Page of Madness by the Japanese director Teinosuke Kinugasa. This 1926 film classic will be accompanied with live music by the Monotak Collectief.

A Page of Madness
The film A Page of Madness evokes an atmosphere of fear and frenzy that is reminiscent of Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari. It is based on a short story by the Japanese author Yasunari Kawabata and visualizes the delusions of an inmate at an insane asylum. The film was deemed lost till 1971 when Kinugasa came across the negative by chance in his own attic.

Monotak Collectief
The musical score is in the hands of the Amsterdam Monotak Collectief: noise, electronics, guitars and percussion. The Monotak Collectief is comprised of Bart de Vrees (percussion and electronics), Eric de Clercq (percussion), Ivo Bol (electronics and live sampling), Dirk Bruinsma (saxophone, bass guitar), Paul Glazier (zither, electric guitar, electronics) and, especially for this occasion, Nora Mulder (organ and noise). And of course the sonorous tones of the Aa Church’s famous Schnitger organ will be part of the exciting soundtrack.

Time: 8 p.m.
Admission: € 15 / € 10 (students and young persons under 18)

Tickets available from the Groninger Forum website and at the Groninger Forum box-office (Hereplein)
