El Automóvil Gris—Featuring a Live Score by Troker

Located at the Skirball Center. 

Watch the Mexican silent film El Automóvil Gris (The Grey Automobile, 1919), and be mesmerized by a live performance from the world-renowned Mexican band Troker. Considered one of the most important cinematic works in silent film history, El Automóvil Gris is a tale of cops and robbers. In this special engagement, the escapades of the Grey Automobile Gang, who once terrorized the streets of Mexico City, come to life with Troker’s score, an innovative fusion of jazz, funk, prog rock, DJ scratching, and traditional mariachi.

Arrive early to view the exhibitions! Another Promised Land: Anita Brenner’s Mexico and Surface Tension by Ken Gonzales-Day: Murals, Signs, and Mark-Making in LA will be FREE to ticketholders and open from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.
