After a three-year break, The Silent Film Festival in Thailand returns in June to the Thai Film Archive, with a programme of classic silent films from around the world screened with live music accompaniment. This one-of-a-kind film festival has been a cultural landmark among cinema enthusiasts since its first edition in 2014. The 7th edition of the festival will take place from June 2-4, at Sala Cinema, Thai Film Archive.
The programme consists of classic silent films. The headline title is Foolish Wives, Eric von Stroheim’s 1922 drama starring the director himself with Miss DuPont, an iconic American silent-era actress. The festival will screen the recently restored version of the film, with 50 minutes footage added to the previous and incomplete version. Don’t miss The Brilliant Biograph: Earliest Moving Images of Europe (1897-1902) is a collection of archive footage compiled by Eye Filmmuseum the Netherlands and British Film Institute.
Every screening of The Silent Film Festival in Thailand will be accompanied by live music. Two of the most respected silent film musicians will be in Thailand to play at the festival, Maud Nelissen and Daan van den Hurk, both from The Netherlands.
