Lost for over 100 years, Louis Neher’s “Im Reich der Zwerge” is an hallucinatory experience that will take the viewer deep underground to the magical kingdom of the Elves. A charming piece of early 20th Century surrealism, "Im Reich der Zwerge" was discovered in the archives of the EYE Film Institute in Amsterdam and incorporates every device that would have been at the disposal of the filmmaker of 1916.
Hidden City is proud to host this special Christmas screening of "Im Reich Der Zwerge" which will be accompanied by a live musical performance by the extraordinary Oliver-Film Ensemble

Difference is sometimes what makes the difference. Add to that some cosmic synchronicity and you’ve got the makings of something really special.
Vancouver’s Summering began as a favour: the story goes that five musicians (all involved in other bands at the time) did a solid for a friend who needed a support act for a one-off show. According to later interviews the reaction to that first gig, a back yard rent money party in downtown east end Vancouver was amazing. Despite this delicate nascence, Summering carried on and have become a band that embraces the tension of its diverse influences.
Check out Ora Cogan's gorgeous new video for "End of Nowhere".This ethereal black and white video transforms Ora's haunting rendition of Slim Whitman classic ballad into a psyche-folk dreamscape.
Directed by Angelo Scaia with assistance from Stephen Lockhart, Kathry Ruby Scaia, and Collin Elder.
Ora Cogan's vocals are transformed into luscious ambient electronic bliss in this new remix by The Passenger (Jesse Creed). The Passenger is a Vancouver based electronic music producer who specializes in the use of vintage and rare analogue synthesizers. This remix is based on vocals taken from Ora Cogan's song 'Into the Blue' off of the Crystallize EP.
