We welcome to the George Geary Studio members of the Austin band Bee Vs. Moth. They perform excerpts from the original score they’ve created for the 1919 silent movie The Oyster Princess, a romantic comedy by the legendary director, Ernst Lubitsch. It’s one of the pictures that helped define the sophisticated style of film-making that was his trademark and which later came to be known as “The Lubitsch Touch.” Bee Vs. Moth performs their complete musical soundtrack live, accompanying Houston Public Media’s screening of The Oyster Princess at Discovery Green.
Bee Vs. Moth performs and talks with St.John Flynn.
