Saturday Night at the Movies: The Silents Were Golden

  • Strategem Studio 10 Gaol Road Bendigo, VIC, 3550 Australia (map)

Dominic Smith, host David Lloyd

Hidden in the archive vaults are superb silent films, and although many were lost, some that remain show the extraordinary birth of cinema. Dominic Smith discovered a passion for these celluloid gems, as he researched and wrote his novel. The Electric Hotel. Join Dominic on this journey back in time, as he shows clips from forgotten films, and journey with him, too, everywhere from a former nuclear bunker to a silent film festival in northern Italy, bringing to life the stories behind the history of film.
