The Rosette 

One of our coolest projects ever returns. In 2012, ACG commissioned the ultra-creative guitar duo of Randall Avers and Benoit Albert, aka Les Frères Méduses, to create an original score for the silent film The Unknown. Joined by the brilliant violinist Jennifer Choi, they are back to share this astonishing movie and score! 

Dark, bizarre and brilliant, Tod Browning’s 1927 silent masterpiece stars “the man of a thousand faces” Lon Chaney, Sr. and superstar Joan Crawford. It begins in a circus in Spain and is filled with twists and turns of love, deception, and revenge.
