Venue: Watershed: Waterside 3
Comedian and Slapstick favourite Lucy Porter and Jane Duffus, author of the What The Frock Book of Funny Women, present and discuss their picks from a new collection of rarely-seen silent comedy films in collaboration with Kino Lober.
The films, made between 1898 to 1926, feature slapstick high jinks, swipes at authority, gender swaps, feminist protests, and rebellions against the behaviour generally expected or demanded of women in those times.
The collection is drawn from international film archives. See this website for film titles.
With live piano accompaniment from John Sweeney. In partnership with Bristol Ideas.
