Maud Nelissen and Mie Yanashita have taken turns playing along with Hitchcock's romantic dramas and  German proto-expressionism, as well as Japanese and Chinese silent films showing at the festival. Their improvisatory deftness and sonic interpretations of visuals recreate the cinematic experience of an era when movies were soundless.
