The La Jolla Cinema League: Exhibit Reception
The Library at UC San Diego celebrates the silent films of the La Jolla Cinema League
Scott Paulson, outreach coordinator of the Arts Library, will screen some of the silent movies of La Jolla Cinema League in the Seuss Room of Geisel Library on Saturday, May 25th at 3:00 p.m. A live music score compiled by Paulson and performed by his Teeny-Tiny Pit Orchestra accompanies the films.
Paulson curates the exhibit about La Jolla Cinema League which will be on display on the lower level, West wing of Geisel Library throughout the months of May and June.
La Jolla Cinema League, a silent film club active in La Jolla in the 1920's, was an amateur group with professional standards that produced entertaining melodramatic silent films. League members wrote their own screenplays, ran the cameras, and experimented with shooting angles and lighting. They developed the films themselves with their own lab equipment and utilized some sophisticated editing techniques.

BLACK FRANCE FILM FESTIVAL
At the Black France Film Festival in Paris, Scott premiered his new live score for Josephine Baker's Siren of the Tropics with African drummer Gene Perry and pianist Andrew Infanti. Professor Bennetta Jules-Rosette, a Josephine Baker scholar, introduced the film.
THE MAN WHO
Inspired by, but in no way a conventional stage adaptation of, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, Oliver Sacks' best-selling collection of case histories about the neurologically impaired. For New Village Arts Theatre's production, Scott's soundscape complemented a superb ensemble of four actors through this adventurous journey of the mind.
