Toronto Silent Film Festival screens Diary of a Lost Girl April 9th

On April 9th, the Toronto Silent Film Festival will screen Diary of a Lost Girl at 7:00 pm. at the Innis Town Hall, 2 Sussex Ave., in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. This special screening will feature live musical accompaniment by Bill O'Meara.

And what's more, copies of the Louise Brooks edition of The Diary of a Lost Girl by Margarete Bohme (the book that was the basis for the film) will be for sale at the event.

Directed by G.W. Pabst, the 113 minute, 1929 film stars Louise Brooks, Fritz Rasp, Valeska Gert and Andre Roanne. It is a worthy follow-up to the prior Pabst-Brooks effort, Pandora's Box (1929). And like that legendary film, it was heavily censored in its day and generally disregarded, only to be rediscovered decades later and now widely acclaimed.
