“What Matters Deafness Of The Ear, When The Mind Hears?” A Cinematic Journey Through Silent Film + Panel

Tuesday 10 January 2017



Beginning from the titular Victor Hugo quote, this programme is designed to be accessible to people with hearing impairments as well as hearing audiences, creating a shared and uniquely immersive experience of silent film screened here without accompanying soundtrack. All films are on 35mm & 16mm, including experimental pieces by Hans Richter and Stan Brakhage and newer silent works by David Leister and Bea Haut, the slapstick comedy of Florence Turner‘s Daisy’s Doodad’s Dial and the early work of Cecil Hepworth.
