Rated NR | Runtime 1 hours & 5 minutes

Now in its 4th year, “Silent Films Out Loud” is a music project created to revivify old silent films with original scores produced in Austin TX. Predominantly focusing on Buster Keaton short films, they have widened their interests considerably since the first iteration of the project in 2017. This year there are two Buster Keaton shorts and an experimental French film which many consider to be the first sci-fi film, called Le Voyage Danz La Lune (1902). This year will feature a score by local composer Carrie Fussell (Calliope Musicals), a score by a local high school class from Akins High School and a score by the director and creator of the project, Jackie Myers.

The Balloonatic: 27 minutes  - A young man (Keaton) has a series of encounters in an amusement area, much like Coney Island until happening upon a group of men preparing a gas balloon for launch. The young man assists the group by climbing atop the balloon to affix a pennant, when the balloon mistakenly takes flight with no one aboard but the young man. The young man finally downs the balloon in a wilderness area, where he encounters a young outdoorswoman and proceeds to have a series of misadventures.

Le Voyage Dans la Lune: 14 minutes(Trip to the Moon, in English) is perhaps Georges Méliès' most famous film, and is considered to be the first science fiction film in cinematic history. The 12 minute film follows a group of astronomers who travel to the Moon in a cannon-propelled capsule, explore the Moon's surface, escape from an underground group of native moon inhabitants (known as Selenites), and return to Earth with one of them as captive. While at once a spoof of more serious science fiction, the film can also be seen as a comment on France's colonial exploits (it was at the time the world's second largest colonial power).

Convict 13: 19 minutesBuster, a particularly untalented golfer plays golf one morning with a group of friends. After a disastrous start he drives his ball into a nearby river but retrieves it after it is consumed by a fish. Meanwhile a convict escapes from a nearby prison and makes his way towards the golf course as the prison guards give chase. Buster's ball is once again stolen, this time by a dog who takes it a long way from the court. Buster accidentally knocks himself out after his ball ricochets off of an equipment shed and while he is unconscious, the prisoner switches clothes with him. The guards give chase and Buster attempts to escape by jumping into a passing car but it turns out to belong to the warden. Though he hastily jumps into another car, he ends up going into the jail himself where the shenanigans continue as he foils a jailbreak
