Silent Talk

Here’s the program for this year’s Hippfest (Hippodrome Silent Film Festival in Bo’ness. Eagle-eyed observers will notice me listed — I’m doing a talk, All Faces are Masks, alongside Chris Heppell from the organisation Changing Faces. This accompanies the screening of THE MAN WHO LAUGHS and deals with the treatment of disfigurement and difference in silent cinema and movies generally.

I’m really excited (and nervous) about making this contribution to one of my favourite events in the film calendar! The event is also streaming, so if you’re unable to make it to Bo’ness you can still scope me out.
