Please note this event has been rescheduled from Wednesday 25 March
Folk favourites Moishe’s Bagel return to launch our annual filmic series, with an opening Klezmer-meets-Balkan set followed by their specially commissioned live score for Mikhail Kalatozov’s 1931 Soviet documentary, ’Salt for Svanetia’. Set in the remote Caucasus mountains of Georgia, the visually stunning film tells the story of the indigenous Svan people and their ancient traditions, set against the context of Soviet modernisation and the first five year plan. Formed in Edinburgh in 2003, Moishe’s Bagel combine the energy and passion of world folk with the excitement and soul of improvisation, and they absolutely love playing at St George’s.
