In the acclaimed German silent film Pandora’s Box, Lulu (Louise Brooks) is a young woman so beautiful and alluring that few can resist her siren charms. Australian composer Jen Anderson wowed Australian audiences in 1993 with performances of her live score accompaniment, and now Jen and her string quartet are showcasing a revamped score to accompany the recently restored print from Deutsches Kinemathek in Berlin.

'Jen Anderson has composed a well-cued string score for the film that alternatively caresses and stalks the screen images as it glides from lush classical celebrations to almost Bernard Herrmann-like frenzy’ - Greg Burchall (The Age, Melbourne).
