Event description

Description

Hello!

After the success of last years silent film special we have decided to do it again!

Anyone who was there last year will know how special the evening was, thanks to Darius' virtuoso accompaniment and Keith's insight! Really excited to have them both on board again!

We will show the Buster Keaton classic 'Sherlock Jr' alongside some shorter films with Darius performing live alongside the films.

Sherlock JR - "This film is one of Buster Keaton's funniest and most technically innovative features. He plays the floor sweeper and projectionist of a small-town movie theater who in his free time studies to be a detective."

Keith Withall

Keith taught Film Studies at further and higher ed levels and has lectured at National media Museum! Keith has authored a book - Studying Early and Silent Cinema and has a Blog:

Keith will provide a general introduction to silent cinema and then a more in depth introduction to our main feature – Sherlock Jr

And the brilliant Dairius Battiwalla providing live piano accompaniment throughout!

“Thankfully, in Battiwalla’s experienced hands [the] score is adept and varied, throwing in shades of church and carnival along the way”
