We are thrilled to invite you to a very special screening of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde silent version directed by John S. Robertson, accompanied by a live soundtrack performed by Zone Libre.
The French duo comprising the legendary musicians Serge Teyssot-Gay (Noir Désir, Interzone) and Cyril Bilbeaud (Sloy) is back with a new project commissioned by the prestigious Cité de la Musique.
After F. W. Murnau's Nosferatu (1922) and Robert Wiene's The Cabinet of Caligari (1919), they have decided to soundtrack Dr Jekyll et Mr Hyde in its iconic version by John S. Robertson's  (1920).
