Bassist Alexis Cuadrado's live score on the silent film SHOES, New York premiere

The score will accompany a screening of the iconic 1916 silent film Shoes directed by the American pioneer female filmmaker Lois Weber. Shoes follows the story of a young woman who struggles to replace her only pair of shoes, which are falling to pieces, while supporting a family of six with a deadbeat father. According to the composer, “the score is in conversation with the film across a century’s divide on the fight for women’s rights, poverty and workers’ rights, and how these issues continue to plague our world today. This piece is a statement that helps us reflect on how we do or don’t evolve as a society.”
