As part of the BFI London Film Festival, the ECO will perform Zou Ye’s newly commissioned score live to the screening of the 1934 Chinese silent film ‘The Goddess’. This newly restored, iconic Chinese classic features a “devastating performance” from its star Ruan Lingyu, as the unnamed ‘goddess’– an ironic euphemism for her profession as a prostitute, who is forced to seek vengeance on her pimp.
Tickets go on sale 18th September, for more information visit the BFI website.
