This new course will feature several of my favorite silent dramas from around the world with background on each film and the reasons why I chose them. Films to be screened include Laugh, Clown, Laugh with Lon Chaney, Fritz Lang’s Destiny, Sergei Eisenstein’s Strike, and the French crime thriller, Fantomas.
