At the Cinema Museum: the history of silent film
Recipient of an honorary Oscar in 2010, renowned film historian Kevin Brownlow explains and demonstrates the rapid progression of film techniques during the silent era, from films lasting a minute, showing one shot, to massive epics with stunning photography and editing.
All film clips will be 35mm, starting with a one-minute newsreel film of 1900, graduating through to the first attempts at story-telling and climaxes.
The piano accompanist for the evening will be Stephen Horne.
