Museo del Cine: Syncing Stephen Horne & "Galería Cinematográfica Infantil" (1927)

This delightful GIF became an emblem of the 2018 Orphan Film Symposium devoted to love.

It then became an Orphans 11 T-shirt.

A happy marriage resulted from the April 14th screening at the 11th Orphan Film Symposium -- and the Museo del Cine has already debuted it online.  Stephen Horne played musical accompaniment (accordion, piano, and glockenspiel) for the museum's restoration of the silent film Galería Cinematográfica Infantil (ca. 1927), introduced by Carolina Cappa.  The Buenos Aires team has married that raw live New York recording, complete with audience laughter and applause,  to the newly-restored 12-minute portrait of a hundred kids living in the town of General Pico, La Pampa, Argentina, all filmed by Domingo Filippini

Enjoy it on a big screen!
