The Fairytales: Early Colour Stencil films from Pathe
  • Description

    Once upon a time, during the belle époque in turn-of-the-century Paris, a short-lived film form called ‘scènes de feeries' ('fairy films') were produced in great number by the Pathé Frères Company.

    In jewel like colours the films recreated the theatrical spectacles of the age with their fantastical settings, dancing girls, mythical beasts, supernatural beings and a plethora of stage illusion enhanced by the trickery of the new medium of film. Made to appeal to young and old spectators alike, these gorgeous films offer modern audiences a fascinating glimpse into the magical world of the nineteen century theatre.

    These breathtaking films are released here with newly-commissioned soundtracks composed by experimental artists from the leading British independent label Touch, including Chris Watson, Fennesz, Hildur Guðnadóttir, Ryoji Ikeda, Philip Jeck, and bjnilsen amongst others.

Pathe's Feeries

Quite an achievement. Adding new sound to it is an experiment, not always successful, but praiseworthy nevertheless. Highly recommended. (My compliments go to Zavvi for taking just a week to deliver it.)
