THE KID STAKES


The Pics and Flicks has a special treat on April 1 as part of the Kiama Jazz Festival!

Doors open 7pm and the cost for this special night is $15.

The Kid Stakes, made in Australia in 1927, is one of the greatest comedies of the silent era.

An original score will be performed on the night by Jan Preston, renowned composer, jazz and blues pianist.



The Kid Stakes is based on the comic strip, Fatty Fin, a scruffy 6 yr old leader of a gang of kids in the dockside suburb of Woolloomooloo in Sydney. Fatty enters his pet goat Hector in the annual
goat races, but his rival Bruiser Murphy tries to ensure that he won't win. Hector is let loose in the grounds of a Potts Point mansion where he eats a large portion of the prize garden. The comedy continues!!



Composer and performer Jan Preston is one of Australia’s leading film composers and a renowned jazz and blues pianist.

Her theme to the iconic ABC TV series, Australian Story can be heard every Monday night nationwide in Australia.
She composed the soundtrack for all five Australian Dynasties Series on ABC TV, the 4 part drama series Bastard Boys, and hundreds of documentaries and documentary series.
Jan has recently completed music for her 6th feature film, her sister Gaylene Preston's latest movie, Home By Christmas.
Jan has also composed and performed the music for 12 silent movies, including The Kid Stakes.



"I find the process of adding music to the sound effects and dialogue of a film endlessly fascinating and totally obsessive. The musical layers possible from the underscore can change the emotional impact and the meaning of the film to the viewer, and I love the way every film score I compose emerges from the world of the film."
