Where: Noorderlicht

After the rocking screening at Lowlands festival, TABU will be screened open air at Noorderlicht in Amsterdam.

The film will be once again accompanied by the new score composed and performed live by the Amsterdam surf-rock legends The Anacondas.

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.

Tabu is going to be screened with a new score composed and performed live by The Anacondas . The Anacondas play kick ass, spaced out, groovy, reverb drenched and heavily surf influenced rock 'n' roll but left out the singing. The Anacondas play dinner dance parties, weddings, underground open air festivals and people's living rooms and back yards ... Hell, The Anacondas would play anywhere their backline fits in!
