Courses / Art, Music, Dance and Film / SILENT IS GOLDEN
Coordinators: Ellen Shapiro, Wayne Cotter
Silent film was a new art, the first art to be an international communicator of stories. Emotions were portrayed wordlessly. Time was its tool. Space was portrayed in novel ways. It was an entirely different medium from the sound films that followed: it was as painting to photography. And more than half those who worked on it were women!
