The ancient world in silent cinema

12 05 2009

University College London Department of Greek & Latin and University of Bristol Department of Classics proudly present

*THE ANCIENT WORLD IN SILENT CINEMA (2)*

An afternoon & evening of silent film screenings with piano accompaniment and related talks for silent films with settings in Biblical or Near Eastern Antiquity. As with the first screening of films set in ancient Greece & Rome which we held in January, almost all of the films to be screened in June are not available for purchase in video or DVD format, and are rarely shown in cinemas. They survive as viewing copies in film archives.

The event is open to the public and admission is free. ALL ARE WELCOME (no ticket required). For further details, go to Silent Cinema event.
