What is this?

Introduction

LOOK is proud to announce the screening of one of the early and most influential films of avant-guard British filmmaker John Smith.

Eugene BIRMAN / Scott DIEL: Nostra Culpa
Starring: Iris OJA, Balázs HORVÁTH & Anima Musicae
Live performance: 6/12/2014, 7pm | On view until 18/01/2015

LOOK is proud to present Nostra Culpa, a dramatic orchestral work in two movements often referred to as the world's first 'financial opera'. Representing both sides of the spending coin, the piece takes up the age-old economic disagreement of austerity vs. stimulus and was inspired by a spectacular row between Paul Krugman, the Nobel laureate economist and Toomas Hendrik Ilves, the President of Estonia on Twitter. Estonian vocal star Iris Oja will sing the words of both protagonists, from a libretto by Scott Diel and music by Eugene Birman. The Hungarian premiere of Nostra Culpa will be performed by Anima Musicae Chamber Orchestra conducted by Balázs Horváth.
