Details About the Film

This film is part of the series Screentime: Discover Film, Together

Presented as part of Screentime, as well as Silent Movie Day with cinemas across the globe, this energetic and reflexive introduction to silent comedy transports a day-dreaming projectionist through the silver screen and into worlds of action, romance, and intrigue. Brimming with kinetic creativity and head-spinning physicality, the Great Stone Face’s influence—even a century on—can be felt everywhere from Chuck Jones to Jackie Chan, and Donald Glover to Daniels. Screens with Buster Keaton’s show-stopping short Cops (1922, 18 min), full program runs 70 min.
