Triple Feature: Landmark Silent Films on 16mm

Classic Film Night

For our first 16mm film screening, we are delighted to present a triple feature with three landmark silent films:

Film by Samuel Beckett (1969)

A twenty-minute, almost totally silent film in which Buster Keaton attempts to evade observation by an all-seeing eye. But, as the film is based around Bishop Berkeley’s principle ‘esse est percipi’ (to be is to be perceived), Keaton’s very existence conspires against his efforts.

Un Chien Andalou (1925)

Luis Buñuel, in collaboration with Salvador Dalí, presents 17 minutes of bizarre — sometimes disturbing — surreal imagery in a mysterious film open to many interpretations.

Battleship Potemkin (1925)

In the midst of the Russian Revolution of 1905, the crew of the battleship Potemkin mutiny against the brutal, tyrannical regime of the vessel’s officers. The resulting street demonstration in Odessa brings on a police massacre.
