Different From the Others presented by Jonny Best
As part of Yorkshire Silent’s Film Festival, Jonny Best will be showing ‘Different from the Others’ whilst accompanying the silent movie with an original improvised score on the piano. ‘Different From the Others’ or ‘Anders als die Andern’ is a film about two male musicians who fall in love, but blackmail and scandal makes the affair take a tragic turn. The 1919 film was one of the first gay-themed films, burned by the Nazis and then stitched back together using sections recovered from archives across the world.
Yorkshire Silent Film Festival takes place each May in cinemas, theatres, arts centers, music and community centres around Yorkshire. The festival aims to celebrate and foster the art of silent film with live music accompaniment and to increase the opportunities for audiences in Yorkshire and the North to explore the art form.
