Paying homage to the musical talents of The Marvellous Corricks, renowned Tasmanian composer and performer Dean Stevenson and his band of three musicians will accompany the moving pictures with a playful new musical soundscape.
The Marvellous Corricks were eight talented siblings: seven sisters and their brother, Leonard who was just 14 years old when he started screening silent films.
In 1901 Leonard’s early projections were a highlight of his family’s travelling shows, which were filled with sketches and singalongs.
Leonard’s Beautiful Pictures presents these100-year-old films featuring the fascinating newsreels that once awed our local communities with the latest in cinematography.
