As part of the upcoming documentary UFA-MAN: (The Unknown Story of Film Pioneer David Oliver), film maker Mark Oliver has toured the world presenting the surviving works of his late grandfather, cinema pioneer David Oliver. Perhaps best known as co-producer of silent classic The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, it is therefore with great pleasure we were able to present this screening with live soundtrack of one of the masterpieces of the silent era. The story of Caligari's production is surrounded with mystery, even more so for Mark Oliver, grandson of one of the film's original producers. Armed only with a handful of photographs and family stories, Mark Oliver has set out on a journey to uncover the mysterious story of his film pioneer grandfather, a man for whom the term "movie mogul" might have been invented. UFA-MAN will stage a number of productions throughout the course of the coming year in London, Los Angeles, Barcelona, Madrid, Berlin, and Vancouver. Each event will focus on the film productions of David Oliver across the course of his 40 year career. Each film will be presented with an exciting live musical performance by a host of talented musicians.
