The Rats & People Motion Picture Orchestra with The Blot @ 2017 St. Louis International Film Festival
The pioneering Lois Weber was one of the first women to direct films, and SLIFF pays tribute to the filmmaker by screening a recent restoration of her silent The Blot, which addresses the all too relevant issue of income inequality. The local Rats & People Motion Picture Orchestra  whose annual appearances at SLIFF are always a fest highlight  has created an original score for the film and will perform it live. In the film, Professor Griggs teaches the unmotivated sons of the rich and powerful, but he fails to make a living wage. When one of the professors wealthy students, Phil West, and the impoverished Rev. Gates both fall for young Amelia Griggs, Phil recognizes the disparity in their lives and tries to do something to change it. The program also features the short Yours Sincerely, Lois Weber, which briskly examines the achievements of the filmmaker.
