Tuesday, October 24 – “El Automóvil Gris—Featuring a Live Score by Troker”

Watch the Mexican silent film El Automóvil Gris (The Grey Automobile, 1919), and be mesmerized by a live performance from the world-renowned Mexican band Troker. Considered one of the most important cinematic works in silent film history, El Automóvil Gris is a tale of cops and robbers. In this special engagement, the escapades of the Grey Automobile Gang, who once terrorized the streets of Mexico City, come to life with Troker’s score, an innovative fusion of jazz, funk, prog rock, DJ scratching, and traditional mariachi.
