Bryony Dixon, silent-film curator at the British Film Institute, presents an eye-opening introduction to some of Britain’s earliest and most spectacular films, shot with astonishing clarity on large-format 68mm film. With a mix of actuality and grand showmanship, these films document the current events and personalities of the late Victorian era, from intimate scenes with the British royal family to popular sporting events and the finest stage performers of the day. Piano accompaniment by John Sweeney. Program approx. 90 min.
This film accompanies To Save and Project: The 16th MoMA International Festival of Film Preservation.
