DEEDS NOT WORDS: THE WOMEN PIONEERS OF SILENT COMEDY
+ live score by The Lucky Dog Picturehouse
While the Suffragettes were fighting for women to have the vote, their cinematic counterparts were more than equal to the men, creating and starring in some of the most successful, subversive and inventive films of the era. This special selection of rarely-screened shorts celebrates the brilliant women of silent comedy.
Curated and presented by BFI Silent Film Curator Bryony Dixon with a new live score by The Lucky Dog Picturehouse.
