A 90 minute lecture with film extracts. Introduced by Colin Shindler.

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.

Tickets are available at the Arts Picturehouse box office. You can either buy your ticket on the door or online at: (Screen Media and Cultures students please contact Emma Wilson at about tickets).

The event, organised by the Cambridge Screen Media Group at CRASSH in collaboration with the Arts Picturehouse, is part of this year’s Festival of Ideas.

This talk is part of the Cambridge Screen Media Group series.
