Synopsis:

Despite being produced during the period when the first ‘talkies’ appeared, Such is Life was shot as a silent film and as a consequence failed to attract much attention at the time of its release. It has since gone on to be recognised as a landmark work of silent cinema that showcases a medium at the peak of its powers. Carl Junghans’ film makes striking use of close-ups and bold, rhythmic editing to tell its tragic story of a working-class woman and her abusive alcoholic husband. Accompanied by a live performance on piano from Jonathan Best.

LIFF 2017 is presenting other great film events with live music this year including:

The Ballad of Shirley Collins with Trembling Bells

British Sea Power at Leeds Town Hall: Music for Polish Animation Classics
