A Night at the Movies is a concert featuring a live, 22-piece VSO chamber orchestra accompanying seven stop-motion animation and documentary films with Vermont ties, as part of the 2022 Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival. The program weaves though a breadth of musical styles and stories, from two animated shopping carts searching for love to the story of Hansel and Gretel. Adventurous lemurs learn to fly, a little girl grows up in an undocumented farmworker family, and a director chronicles his path from prison to filmmaking.
