By Your Side + Autumn Frost

Love makes the world go 'round. And it does in this, the latest in our music-movie mashup series.

Allison Crowe's song "By Your Side", (performed "Live at Wood Hall"), is paired here with an excerpt from "Autumn Fire" - avant garde cinema from 1930/31.

Labeled "a film poem" by its creator, Herman G. Weinberg, "Autumn Fire" is an impressionistic love letter from its director to actress Erna Bergman ("The girl" to Willy Hildebrand's "The boy").

As well as making films, Weinberg is a noted writer and film historian, and adapted (subtitled) numerous movies for the screen including cinema classics such as "La Strada" (directed by Federico Fellini) and "La Grande Illusion” (d. Jean Renoir).
