Louise Brooks films screen in London and Dublin Sunday
Sunday is the day to catch a Louise Brooks' silent film if you live in either London or Dublin. My new article on examiner.com covers the events.
On Sunday, April 10th, the British Film Institute is showing Beggars of Life, a1928 American silent film. This special screening, part of the 14th annual British Silent Film Festival, takes place at the BFI Southbank in London. Accompanying the film will be The Dodge Brothers, who will be joined on-stage by the acclaimed silent film accompanist Neil Brand.
And over in Dublin, the Irish instrumental group 3epkano will be performing their soundtrack to the 1929 German classic Diary Of A Lost Girl. This special screening will take place at a popular Dublin venue known as The Button Factory.
