The silent film era of the 1900s and 1930s is long forgotten. Some classics failed to withstand the test of time, while others lay ‘dormant’ in film archives around the world.
Films will be shown on a giant screen, accompanied by musicians playing original compositions live on stage. It is a means of resuscitating silent film repertoires and inviting audiences to discover or rediscover cinematic classics, through a different lens.
The silent films include a varied selection of films starring the likes of Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, as well as productions by René Clair and the renowned Dadasaheb Phalke.
