Part of ONE Festival

Presented with Opera Omaha

Film Streams and Opera Omaha present CINEsound (Mar 29 - Apr 14), an operatic film series in conjunction with ONE Festival — Opera Omaha’s multi-week, multi-venue festival with an emphasis on experimentation. 

Part of the festival’s Performance Series, CINEsound is curated by ONE Festival artist-in-residence Ross Karre, of the International Contemporary Ensemble, and will occur across four Film Streams programs: 

Midnight Movies

ONE Festival and CINEsound will kick off with a midnight screening of a rare 35mm print of Andrzej Zulawski’s Possession. Sam Neill stars in this legendary occult-horror-thriller about a jilted man trying to solve the mystery of his wife’s sudden strange behavior. The film will be preceded by a live overture — Hannah Hartman’s “Message from the Lighthouse” — performed by Karre. Tickets for this one-time showing are $10 general, $7.50 for seniors, students, teachers, military, and those arriving by bicycle, and $5 for Film Streams Members and Opera Omaha Season and Festival Subscribers.

Courses: Deep Dive

Learn how film sound is created and examine the ways it enriches the movie-watching experience in a Courses: Deep Dive called “Music and the Moving Image,” facilitated by Karre and Film Streams Education Director Diana Martinez, PhD.
