Los Angeles 2012

Silent Movie - USA 2012 - Gerhard Gruber

Silent Movie Pianist Gerhard Gruber (Austria) was invited by the "Los Angeles Jewish Film Festival" to perform "Moon of Israel", directed by Michael Curtiz, at the "Saban Theatre". Thanks to Hilary Helstein for inviting me. This performance has been supported by the Austrian General Consulate in Los Angeles - thanks to Andreas Lins.

"American Cinematheque" brought Gerhard Gruber to the "Aero Theatre" for playing "Cafe Elektric" as a tribute to Marlene Dietrich (20th anniversary of her death on May 6).

Thanks to the "American Cinematheque" for inviting me (Gwen and Beth), to Don and Sandy for their warmhearted hospitality, and to the Filmarchive Austria (Ernst Kieninger) for support.
