The live screening of TABU with surf rock score by The Anacondas was selected as closing event of the 2013 edition of Noordelijk Film Festival in Leeuwarden.
Tabu was screened with a new score composed and performed live by Dutch surf legends The Anacondas .
The Anacondas play kick ass, spaced out, groovy, reverb drenched and heavily surf influenced rock 'n' roll but left out the singing.
TABU: A STROY OF THE NEW SEAS
| Dir. F. W. Murnau | Germany | 1931 | 81 min |
Murnau’s Tabu brings the ‘Romeo & Juliet’ tale in Polynesia, where the drama of a young couple unfolds. Two lovers are doomed when the girl is chosen as ‘holy maid’ and declared “tabu” to all men by a tribal edict.
Unlike his landmark expressionist titles such as Nosferatu and Faust, Tabu is filmed in sunny Tahiti and features gorgeous tropical landscapes and dazzling underwater images. Co-produced by legendary documentary filmmaker Robert Flaherty and filmed with a cast of local non-professional actors to add realism to the story, Tabu was Murnau’s last film as he died in a car accident just a few weeks before the film’s premiere.
