Laila (George Schneevoigt  |  Norway  |  1929  |  PG)

Perhaps the greatest achievement of Norway’s silent cinema, ‘Laila’ is an epic love story following the fortunes of a young woman who finds herself torn between divided loyalties to Norway’s indigenous Sami community and the culture of her birth parents. Laila is presented here with a newly commissioned score from rising stars of the Scottish folk scene, Rona Wilkie and Marit Fält.

This screening was presented in partnership with Hippodrome Silent Film Festival.
