GALYA CHIKISS plays live soundtrack for silent horror UNKNOWN (Tod Browning, 1927)
Composer, pianist and electronic musician Galina Ozeran, better known as Chikiss, will perform a live soundtrack for one of the most spectacular and powerful horrors of the silent movie era. "The Unknown" is a 1927 American silent horror film directed by Tod Browning and starring Lon Chaney as carnival knife thrower Alonzo the Armless and Joan Crawford as the scantily clad carnival girl he hopes to marry. By the way, Chaney did collaborative scenes with the real-life armless double Paul Desmuke, whose legs and feet were used to manipulate objects such as knives and cigarettes in frame with Chaney's upper body and face.
