Special presentation as part of the Phi loves Don Hahn series.

On November 28, the Phi Centre will revive the silent movie tradition with a screening of Fantasia 2000, in which music meets animation in a dazzling flight of lyricism. During this one-of-a-kind event, the film will be accompanied by a live soundtrack, composed by music group Esmerine, founded by percussionist Bruce Cawdron (Godspeed You! Black Emperor) and cellist Rebecca Foon (Thee Silver Mt. Zion Montreal Orchestra, Saltland). Renowned for their live performances, Esmerine has released two critically acclaimed albums and has recorded with local legends such as Patrick Watson and Lhasa de Sela. The band will release their new album, Mechanics of Dominion, on October 20.
