Nearly 100 years after its release, an early pacifist film is brought to life with a score by Olga Neuwirth.

The visionary film-maker Alfred Machin’s Maudite soit la guerre is one of the earliest anti-war films, released in 1914 just one month before the outbreak of the First World War.south

Almost a century later, in 2013, Austrian composer Olga Neuwirth was compelled to write a score for the film, fusing traditional silent-film piano accompaniments with brusque strings and creeping electric guitar to bring its spirit to life.
