188 The Impact of Silent Film

20 October 2011, 18:00 - 20:00

Arts Picturehouse 38-39 St. Andrews Street

Kevin Brownlow, winner of an Honorary Award at the 2010 Oscars

Kevin Brownlow is coming to give a lecture on the impact of silent film. The silent era was the richest in the cinema's history. Every visual advance (except CGI) was invented before talkies. This presentation will show the astonishingly rapid advance from the single-shot films of 1893 to the monumental epics of the 1920s.
