The animated puppet film ›The Magical Clock – The Magic Forest‹ (France, 1928) by Ladislas Starevich will be revived in a live film concert as part of the cresc... Biennale für Moderne Musik with the IEMA Ensemble 14/15. It narrates the fairytale of the watchmaker Bombastus, whose magical clock is peopled by small mechanical figures. These come to life at midnight, invitinging his granddaughter Yolande into a magical world where she falls head-over-heels in love with the White Knight and experiences of all kinds of adventures. Starevich’s fantastic film world, which combines elements of animated and real film, gains an additional dynamic element through Paul Dessau’s cheeky, illustrative music.
