Prague’s Žižkov to host new “Sound of Silent Movies” competition

Eight musicians and groups are set to compete in the inaugural edition of the “Sound of Silent Movies” competition in Prague’s Žižkov district, which starts on Thursday evening and runs through September 14th.

Audiences will select the winner, based on the best improvisions accompanying silent classics such as Modern Times with Charlie Chaplin and the original King Kong from 1933 starring Fay Wray, as well as Czech cartoons featuring the beloved ant Ferda Mravenec.
