Professor Vito Adriaensens presents a five-part silent cinema matinee series with live music by Belgian jazz musician Adriaan Campo and friends.
In this final installment, we dive into a lesser-known avant-garde with a stunning cinematic adaptation of Belgian Nobel Prize Maurice Maeterlinck’s Symbolist play The Blue Bird, in which two poor children travel to strange fairytale lands to search for the blue bird of happiness, accompanied by a motley crew of household characters.
