Contemporary Silent Cinema

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

In this episode we will talk through all of the major contemporary silent films, or rather, the few there are:

  • Silent Movie
  • Juha
  • The Call of Cthulhu
  • Brand Upon the Brain
  • Dr Plonk 
  • La Antena
  • The Artist
  • Blanchieves

And ask the following questions:  

1. Are silent films simply the result of [b]unfortunate technical limitations[/b], which the medium luckily overcame - or are they a [b]unique style with its own merits[/b].

2. Why did it take such a long time from the decline of silents to any kind of larger silent film project.

3. What do we wish to see from silent cinema in the future.
