Great War: Unknown War Silent Film Fortnight
Next month the Film Department in conjunction with the Turner Sims presents a series of screenings of silent films focusing on the film heritage of the First World War.
Highlights include Neil Brand (from BBC4’s ‘Sound of Cinema’ and ‘Sound of Song’) sharing his unique vision of the century-old war, Stephen Horne accompanying ‘The Guns of Loos’, and a free screening of controversial Edith Cavell biopic ‘Dawn’ accompanied by the university’s own Andrew Fisher. The latter screening will be preceded by a research seminar featuring WW1 film experts Rebecca Harrison and Lawrence Napper.
