A Throw of Dice with Heather, Kim

Program by :

The 26th of December, Friday, 2014; had a bunch of people assembled in the auditorium of Bharat Nivas to watch the silent film A Throw of Dice; based on a story from the Mahabharata, set against the backdrop of the palatial settings of a dusty Rajasthan.
The timid yet bold actress blushing away at the sight of her lover, a might royal King, who falls in love with the charm and innocence of the common woman, Sunita. Amidst endless plots and plans to keep King Ranjit and Sunita apart, their fragile love still never ceases to blossom. With a simplistically cliched plot line, predictable scenes and raw performances by the humble actors, the naive charm of it leaves you amused and entranced.
And what better an ambience than the live accompaniment of artists such as Dr. Kim Cunio and Heather Lee who composed the background score for the film, perfectly emulating the clicks of the camel hooves, the Ghunghrus on the dancers’ feet, the eerie and despair, and the fleeting moments of joy and romance.
The silent film was brought alive through their eclectic compositions; and reminded one of the Charlie Chaplin days when such orchestraic accompaniments were carried out for silent movies.
A hearty applause for Dr. Kim Cunio, Heather Lee, Susanna, Gerard and Ruben who made this event possible.
The recording includes the entire sound play for the movie.
