Cine-Concert Georges Melies
Cine-Concert Georges Melies

           On 8th November at 18.30 at Sala Isouard, a conference, in English, followed by an open discussion, will be presented by Tony Cassar Darien, arts commentator, who will highlight the role of Méliès in the history of cinema.  Marie-Helen Lehérissey, great-granddaughter of Méliès, will then intervene, recounting anecdotes and personal memories of her great-grandfather who was one of the most inventive and most endearing creators of the septième art – this talk will be in French.  At the end of these interventions the participants will be invited for a vin d’honneur at Café Fumia. (This event is complimentary)

 

           On the following day, 9th November at 20.00, at Teatru Manoel an exclusive programme of movies of Georges Méliès will be presented in their original format, each of them being accompanied, as in the 1900s, by a pianist and a film commentary.  The texts will be recited by Marie-Helen Lehérissey in their French version of origin, as taken from Georges Méliès, and by Teresa Friggieri in their English version.  The original musical compositions will be interpreted by Lawrence Lehérissey, great-great-grandson of Méliès. The original spools of the movies have been recovered, restored, conserved and edited thanks to the work of the association "Les Amis de Georges Méliès ".

ĊINE-KUNCERT GEORGES MELIES

TEATRU MANOEL / VALLETTA, 8 U 9 NOVEMBRU, 2011

 

L-Ambaxxata Franċiża u l-Alliance française Malte Mediterranée flimkien mat-Teatru Manoel se jiddedikaw żewġ lejliet fit-8 u d-9 ta’ Novembru biex ifakkru l-150 sena mit-twelid tad-direttur magħruf Franċiż George Méliès li twieled fit-8 ta’ Diċembru 1861.

Fit-8 ta’ Novembru fis-6.30 pm, se tiġi organizzata taħdita bl-Ingliż minn Tony Cassar Darien, kummentatur tal-arti, dwar is-sehem ta’ dan id-direttur magħruf fl-istorja taċ-ċinema. Se jkun hemm ukoll Marie-Helen Lehérissey, li tiġi n-neputija tad-direttur Méliès, biex titħaddet fuq bużnannuha u tirrakonta, bil-Franċiż, dwaru u dwar il-memoriji tiegħu li għandhom il-familja tagħha. Méliès jibqa’ l-iżjed magħruf bħala artist kreattiv tal-arti tat-tertuqa fl-ewwel żmenijiet tas-silent. Fi tmiem il-lejla se jkun vin d’honneur.

L-għada, 9 ta’ Novembru, se tittella’ lejla ta’ films silent li ħadem l-istess direttur Méliès. Dawn se jidhru fl-oriġini tagħhom u jkunu akkumpanjati minn pjanist, Lawrence Lehérissey, li wkoll jiġi neputi tal-istess direttur Franċiż. Waqt il-wiri tal-films Marie-Helen Lehérissey se tgħaddi kummenti diretti bħal ma kien isir fis-snin tal-1900. Teresa Friggieri se tikkumenta wkoll fi traduzzjoni għall-Ingliż. Din il-lejla ta’ wiri saret possibli għaliex ġew restawrati u kkunservati l-films oriġinali bis-saħħa tal-għaqda Franċiża “Les Amis de Georges Méliès”.
