The Ring: Live stream
The Space streamed Alfred Hitchcock’s The Ring, with live music from the Soweto Kinch Band – from the Hackney Empire in London.
Hitchcock’s love-triangle melodrama is one of his most admired silent films, following boxer Jack from his humble fairground roots to the Albert Hall, and an epic fight with his Australian love-rival, Bob. Filmed in 1927, The Ring brings into sharp focus society’s changing social attitudes, especially around race. It includes some imagery and language which would be unacceptable for today’s cinema-going audiences, but the norm for its time. Presented with the world premiere of a jazz score by Soweto Kinch, performed live by the Soweto Kinch Band.
