Silent Movie Mondays: Laila

2/25/2019 | Paramount Theatre

Film & Media Arts Downtown

The epically scaled 1929 Norwegian feature comes from Danish-German director and noted cinematographer George Schnéevoigt. Laila is separated from her parents as a baby and raised by a wealthy reindeer owner in the frozen tundra. She grows into a young woman of two worlds, torn between two suitors and two cultures—the Sami/Indigenous people and the dominant white Norwegians. This film is expertly photographed with a modern cinematic flair. Musical accompaniment is provided at this screening by Tedde Gibson on the Paramount’s Mighty Wurlitzer Organ.
