Silent Women Film Pioneers: Lois Weber (U)

Borderlines Film Festival
Thursday 1 January 1970
Director: Lois Weber
Duration: 135 minutes

One of the great writer-directors of early Hollywood, and the most renowned female director of her era, Lois Weber (1879 – 1939) was, at one time, the highest-paid director in Hollywood. With a career that lasted over 25 years, Weber started her own production company and directed over 40 features and hundreds of short films. South West Silents and Borderlines are proud to present this special evening celebrating Weber’s work with a screening of two recently restored titles, her short Suspense (1913) and feature film The Blot (1921).

With live piano accompaniment by Lillian Henley

Introductions and a special Q&A with film critics and writers Pamela Hutchinson and Tara Judah.
