Fantasia of Color in Early Cinema

Color in early cinema was used to charm the audience even further with the new medium. Initially applied by hand, film coloring gradually became much sophisticated and semi-automatized, until it disappeared completely with the advent of sound. Whether realistically colored (like the ones showing the latest fashions) or completely fantastic (like the fairy tales) films lose much of their relevance if presented in black&white.

Accompanied with the performance of silent movie musician Stephen Horne and presentation by Mariann Lewinsky, following films from Eye Filmmuseum’s collection will be screening:

Danse des Ouled-Naïls / Dance of Ouled- Naïls
Obsession d’or / Obsession with Gold
Mode der tasschjes te Parijs
Excerpt from Brodeuses Hongroises / Hungarian embroidery / fragment
Voyage Sur Jupiter / Journey to Jupiter
