Composer-artist-writer Paul D. Miller, otherwise known as DJ Spooky, joins a string quartet in a live performance of his re-score of the 1956 South Korean melodrama Madame Freedom as the film screens. Part of DJ Spooky’s The Met Reframed series, the performance takes place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium. The film is considered a classic, and finds a housewife venturing outside the home for the first time to get a job — and have an affair — and is seen as a backlash against Westernization. The new music is based in modern jazz and electronica, and plays off of the dramatic tensions in the romantic potboiler.
