After their incredible, sold-out film concert accompanying Alfred Hitchcock’s Blackmail in 2022, The James Whale Orchestra returns to LIFF for the premiere of their brand-new score for the film City Girl (1930). In this classic film from director F.W. Murnau (Nosferatu, Sunrise), a city girl leaves Chicago to live in the countryside of Minnesota and marry the love of her life. Life in the countryside, however, comes with certain challenges that she had not anticipated, leading her to wonder whether she has made the right decision. Can this ‘city girl’ find her feet as a ‘country girl’ as well?
